Steve Mason is down on the ice, laying on his back, being examined by team trainer Jim McCrossin at practice. Needs help getting up.
Really strange situation here. Net is moved way out of the way and coaches/trainers are huddled around Mason as he's being helped.
Mason can't leave the ice under his own power, being helped into the locker room now.
INJURY UPDATES: Goaltender Jason LaBarbera (broken bone in hand) out 2-3 weeks.

Due to the continuing weather-related difficulties in the Greater Buffalo area and out of respect for the fans of the Sabres, Friday's game between the New York Rangers and Buffalo Sabres at First Niagara Center, NHL Game No. 291, has been postponed.
A makeup date will be announced as soon as it can be confirmed.
SJSharks goalie Alex Stalock placed on injured reserve with a lower body injury; is returning to California to see a doctor.
The Ducks (10-3-0) weren't fazed, even with Gibson incurring a lower-body injury that'll be examined Monday in Anaheim. They also prepared for the possibility of LaBarbera getting hurt by dressing goaltending consultant and 45-year-old former NHL goalie Dwayne Roloson. Roloson wore No. 79 and briefly sat on the bench.
Freddie Andersen has minor leg tightness and won't backup. Day to day. Jason LaBarbera called up from AHL Norfolk.
With the shooting incident that's happening on Parliament Hill in Ottawa right now, there are reports that the game might be canceled tonight.
Imagine it will be. City on lockdown. RT @BonksMullet Hope they cancel Sens-Leafs tonight. No way they should play a hockey game after this
Jimmy Howard has a sore groin. He's on 48 hour goalie IR and is eligible to play Tuesday, Holland said.
From #Avalanche PR: If Semyon Varlamov does not play tonight he will go on IR. So his slight groin injury could be more than that.
If Varly goes on IR Calvin Pickard would seemingly be the call-up from LEM. In two games he's 1-1, 1.52 GAA, .952 SP. LEM are 1-1.
