MONTREAL (AP) _ Montreal Canadiens forward Brian Savage has a broken thumb and could miss at least four weeks.

``Usually with an injury like he has, it's no less than four weeks,'' coach Alain Vigneault said Friday.

The Canadiens sent a videotape to the NHL of a Brent Sutter slash on Savage that broke his left thumb during the Chicago Blackhawks' 1-0 victory over Montreal Thursday night.
