Reading what happened, I had a bad flashback to a couple of years ago when Cal O’Reilly caught his skate in the ice and fractured his leg.

Unfortunate for Ekholm and the Ads. Hopefully, Mattias will heal quickly and have no lingering issues.
The ice has been bad in Milwaukee this season. It ruts easily. It looks bad after 5 minutes of play. I have seen a lot of players from the home team and visitors fall by themselves. I think the ice isn't cold (hard) enough. Maybe the refrigeration in the 25 year old BMO Bradley Center isn't as good as it used to be. Maybe that will improve since the outside temp is currently 8 F (-13 C), versus being 32 or 40 F (0 or 5 C) recently.
