There is little question, though, that the injury has the potential to be serious. Staal is a true iron man for the Penguins and has not missed a regular-season game in the past three years. So for him to not be able to answer the bell, there is a deep concern that this injury could leave the big center sidelined for a long period of time.
“Any time a guy misses (time) in the playoffs, there is a good reason why,” Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby said. “You never like to see anybody go off, period. It’s scary and you are always disappointed to see that, but that is the game we play and those are the things we work through.”
