BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Buffalo Sabres forward Jeff Skinner left Saturday's game against the Washington Capitals during the second period with what appeared to be a lower body injury.

Skinner got tangled up with a Capitals player and then went down to the ice, when he went down he was favoring his left leg and needed assistance to get to the locker room.

Skinner returned to start the third period and played the remainder of the game.

Following the game Skinner spoke to reporters and said when he left the ice the medical staff performed some tests and determined he was cleared to return.
