Video- Chris Kelly Suffers A Fractured Leg

from Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe,

The loss, in the end, seemed rather meaningless. It was one more game among 82.

It was one more triumph for the Stars’ Tyler Seguin (three goals) over Loui Eriksson (two). It was one more defeat at TD Garden, in a sea of them in the early season.

None of that, though, was what left the Bruins’ dressing room somber Tuesday night in the wake of the 5-3 ugliness, a defeat by Dallas that ended the Bruins’ 6-0-1 run. That, instead, happened exactly 100 seconds into the game, when Chris Kelly’s left leg buckled, crumpling him to the ice.

The leg remained cocked at an unnatural angle and the pain was writ convincingly across his face.

He was hauled off the ice, his arms around two trainers, no pressure put on his skates at all.

That looked nasty.  I wouldn’t have expected a broken femur out of that fall, but more of a torn ACL or something.  Ouch.  Feel bad for him.
