Three Hurricanes defensemen hurt

Three Carolina Hurricanes defensemen were hurt Tuesday night

during a game against the Florida Panthers.

Bobby Sanguinetti appeared to take a skate to the face, and

Justin Faulk sustained an apparent right leg injury shortly before

Tim Gleason was hit with a high stick.

Faulk was hurt midway through the second period when he collided

with Jack Skille behind the net and hobbled to the dressing room.

The team said he wouldn’t return.

A few minutes later, Gleason was bloodied when he was hit by

Scottie Upshall, drawing a double high-sticking penalty. He was

back for the final 2 minutes of the period.

Sanguinetti was hurt in the first when a Florida player’s skate

appeared to clip his face during a collision. He returned by the

start of the second.
