Carolina Hurricanes forward Andrei Svechnikov left Game 3 versus the Boston Bruins on Saturday late in the third period with an apparent leg injury.

Svechnikov became tangled with Zdeno Chara, and teammates and medical staff needed to help him off the ice.

Hurricanes head coach Rod Brind'Amour didn't have a postgame update on Svechnikov.

"Certainly didn't look good," Brind'Amour said, according to Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer.

Svechnikov is a significant piece of Carolina's offense, and he had logged seven points in five postseason games while averaging over 17 minutes per contest entering Saturday's clash.

The second-year sniper notched 24 goals and 37 assists in 68 regular-season games before the pause.

Boston held on to win the game and take a 2-1 series lead.
