Clowe OK, Thornton Skates

from David Pollak of Working the Corners,

Ryane Clowe won’t miss any games after taking that puck to the throat last night, but that doesn’t mean there weren’t a few scary moments after he went to the bench late in the first period.

Clowe skated at practice today — as did Joe Thornton for the first time since his injury — and afterward described the shot that hit him and his trip to the Dallas hospital to make sure nothing was fractured after he continued to have trouble breathing….

Clowe said the puck struck him just to the right of his Adam’s apple.

“I tried to continue playing, but I couldn’t catch my breath and then I had trouble breathing when I was getting off,” he said.  “I tried to catch my breath on the bench but I couldn’t because I was coughing and puked a little bit.”

When the area of impact started to swell a little bit, that made it even more difficult to breathe and the decision was made to send him to the hospital for further evaluation.
