Eric Staal Appears OK After Hit From Behind

via Lord Stanley’s Blog at the News & Observer,

Eric Staal has apparently escaped a serious injury after he was hit head-first into the boards from behind by Aaron Voros.

With 14:01 to play in the game Voros ran Staal into the boards in front of the Minnesota bench from behind.

After lying on the ice in front of the Minnesota bench, Staal skated gingerly to the Carolina bench as a five-on-five brawl broke out on the ice. As the referees sorted out the mess, Staal could clearly be seen saying “I’m fine” to his teammates.

Voros, though, may be in trouble. He received a major penalty for boarding and likely faces a suspension from the NHL.
