from the Toronto Sun,

Centre Michael Peca’s right knee was a mess—a suspected torn medial collateral ligament and fractured tibia—after a first period knee-on-knee collision with Jim Vandermeer of the Chicago Blackhawks, who weathered seven of eight Leafs power plays and scored short-handed in a 3-1 win.
