Jordan Staal Injured Tonight

Lates word on Staal’s injury was still being evaluated.

update 10:26pm, Staal will have more evaluation tomorrow.

added 11:35pm, from Shawn P. Roarke of NHL.com,

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.”

Well…It’s probably knee related but not a cut because Subban’s skate only hit Staal’s skate(s).  Maybe an mcl or acl from his knee hitting the ice?

After watching it several times I’m almost positive it’s a cut, but we’ll have to wait and see….

Markov was wearing a skate on the foot that got sliced open (severing a tendon) in Mtl’s first game of the season.
Looks like a cut to me.

I have no idea whether it’s gonna make a difference, but folks on lgp.com said Staal uses the new Bauer TotalOne skate….
