Avalanche defenseman Samuel Girard exited the game with an upper body injury and won't return. He has been taken to a local hospital for further evaluation, the team announced.

Girard took a hard hit from Blues forward Ivan Barbashev behind the Avalanche net in the first period. He required assistance to leave the ice and go to the dressing room.

Girard has one goal and two assists through six games in the playoffs. The Avalanche defenseman isn't the only player to exit Game 3 as Blues goalie Jordan Binnington left after a collision with Colorado players Calle Rosen and Nazem Kadri.

The Avalanche and Blues are tied at one in their second round series.
