Video- Michal Rozsival’s Injury

from Mark Potash of the Chicago Sun-Times,

A week ago, a lot of Blackhawks fans were wondering if the Hawks can win the Stanley Cup with defenseman Michal Rozsival. Now, some of those same fans — at least the most fair-minded of them — have to be wondering if the Hawks can win it without him.

Though the Hawks completed a sweep of the Minnesota Wild with a 4-3 victory in Game 4 of their second-round series Thursday night at Xcel Energy Center, they likely will have to go the rest of the way without Rozsival, the 36-year-old defenseman who suffered an ugly, right ankle or foot injury in the second period.

“Tough loss,” coach Joel Quenneville said. “Doesn’t look good.”

Rozsival suffered the injury as he was back-pedaling to defend Wild forward Thomas Vanek at the Hawks’ blue line. Tough-to-watch replays indicated Rozsival’s right ankle turned grotesquely as he fell to the ice with 13:23 left in the second period.
