Panthers play first game since Zednik injury

Feb 13, 2008 - 11:30 AM Montreal (29-19-9) at Florida (26-27-5) 7:30 pm EST

SUNRISE, Florida (Ticker) - The Florida Panthers face the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday in the first game since losing left wing Richard Zednik to a neck injury.

The 32-year-old Zednik underwent emergency surgery at Buffalo General Hospital after getting his carotid artery nearly severed by the skate blade of teammate Olli Jokinen during Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Buffalo Sabres.

Doctors are optimistic that Zednik will make a full recovery and possibly resume his career as early as next season.

As for this season, Florida has dropped two of three contests following a three-game winning streak.

The Canadiens have dropped three straight, including a 3-2 decision at Tampa Bay on Tuesday. Christopher Higgins scored 50 seconds into the contest and Tomas Plekanec gave Montreal a 2-1 lead nearly nine minutes later.

The Panthers have won two of three games against the Canadiens this season.
