That’s terrible.  Sorry to hear it was such a significant injury.

it was horrible, the boston fans were booing like crazy when he got hit and when his two teammates eventually helped him off the ice.  Way to stay classy boston.

Man, that just sucks.  He should have been taken off on a stretcher. It’s making me wince thinking how much pressure he was placing on his spine trying to stand up between Kesler and Higgins. Hope he recovers fully and quickly.
