Jordin Tootoo, Mike Modano, Stephane Robidas

From John Glennon at The Tennessean,

Modano did set a career record for goals by a U.S.-born player, but it was the Predators who snapped a five-game losing streak to the Stars with a 3-2 win in front of a sellout crowd at Nashville Arena.
The Predators hit the 100-point mark for the second consecutive season and – based on what Colorado did late Saturday – may have clinched a third straight playoff berth.
The contest took an ugly turn with 3:39 remaining, following Jordin Tootoo’s hard hit on Modano. Dallas defenseman Stephane Robidas skated hard toward Tootoo in defense of Modano, but Tootoo spun around and flattened Robidas with a punch to the jaw.

Robidas was taken off the ice on a stretcher and then was taken to a Nashville hospital. He suffered a concussion. He was released from the hospital Saturday night and will be re-evaluated in Dallas on Sunday.

Video of Tootoo hit:

added 8:12am, via the Tennessean,

“I turned around and I knew exactly what was going to happen,’’ Tootoo said. “I was just protecting myself. I kept my gloves on and I think Robidas should be the one that’s ready for whatever is coming at him. Hopefully he’s going to be OK.’‘
