Red and Black Hockey

On Saturday night, the Hurricanes won their preseason game against the Thrashers 1-0. Jeff Skinner had the game’s only goal at 1:17 of the third period. Cam Ward had a 32-save shutout, but the thing that the Canes should be concerned about is the health of their winger Sergei Samsonov.
At 1:55 of the third, Samsonov went head-first into the endboards after being tripped by Dustin Byfuglien. My only frame of reference is the Hurricanes radio, and what they gave us is that the Russian sniper lay face first on the ice for several minutes. Medical staff from both teams assisted, he was removed from the ice on a stretcher and he was taken to an Atlanta hospital. The only thing we know right now is that Samsonov had movement in his lower extremities.
More details on Samsonov as they develop.
