DALLAS -- Edmonton Oilers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov left Sunday's game after colliding with Dallas Stars forward Ryan Garbutt during a breakaway attempt.

Bryzgalov made the save with 3:41 left in the second period Sunday but then was replaced by Devan Dubnyk. The Oilers announced on Twitter that Bryzgalov had sustained an upper-body injury and wouldn't return to the game. The Oilers eventually topped Dallas 3-2.

Bryzgalov stopped a forehand shot by Garbutt, but as the puck slid away to the left, Bryzgalov fell face forward onto the ice next to the net and appeared to hold his head.

After a visit from a trainer, he was helped off the ice.

Playing in just his fourth game this season, Bryzgalov made 28 saves and trailed 1-0 when he left the game.
