Malakhov was injured when he deflected a point shot that rose off his stick and struck him in the face late in the third period. The 6-5 Russian was helped to the locker room, leaving behind a puddle of blood.
but I would not have expected that. I do hope he recovers for the playoffs though.
WHAT FLETCH!?!?!? this is hilarious. the flyers are getting totally screwed and be happy we could have a key role in the pain created afterwards. take your time resting vladdy, just watch your back when you goto choir practice!!!
the rangers curse spreads. Primeau runs into Holik and gets a concussion. Mironovs slapper hits Roenick in the face, broken jaw and concussion. and i could swear someone else got injured on an accidental play recently. someone else got hit with a ranger slapshot....ahhh my memory is failing me.
