I taped it and watched it over and over, frame by frame, and you see Martinek's head lurch forward from the impact while Toots is grounded, then his momentum carries him off his skates.

Hopefully Martinek will be back in action soon.
Good, I'm glad to hear this. Man, I wished I had taped Sports Center, but as a general policy of mine, I ignore all but the top 10 plays of the day during hockey season.
