Pens' Roberts out with broken left leg
Veteran forward Gary Roberts left the game between the Penguins and Buffalo Sabres at Mellon Arena tonight after a collision with Buffalo forward Tim Connolly during the second period.
Roberts was diagnosed by team doctors with a broken left fibula, and it is unknown how much time he will miss. Roberts will be re-evaluated by team doctors in the coming days.
Roberts collapsed after Connolly accidentally slid directly into the back of his left knee at 13:32 of the second period. He refused to leave the ice on a stretcher and was helped to the dressing room by forward Georges Laraque and defenseman Darryl Sydor.
