Carolina Hurricanes defenceman Joni Pitkanen left Tuesday's game against the Washington Capitals with a ankle injury and is expected to be out of action for three months, ending his season. Pitkanen was hurt when he raced down the ice while trying to beat an icing call and went hard into the boards with the Capitals' Troy Brouwer near him. He was on the ice in pain and was taken off on a stretcher with his hands covering his face.
