Wisniewski carted off after elbow
Wisniewski had been defending in front of the Anaheim net when Holmstrom skated by and delivered the elbow shot with 6:11 to play in the second period on Tuesday night. Seconds earlier, Wisniewski was hit by a slap shot in the rib area.
When played stopped, Wisniewski remained on the ice on his hands and knees. After several minutes he was helped onto a stretcher. He was then taken to UC Irvine Medical Center for precautionary reasons.
The Ducks were leading 2-0 in Game 3 of the Western Conference semifinal series when Wisniewski was hurt.
