Teams will occasionally respond to a blow like this with a miraculous game... or maybe even two... but I don't see six more wins with this lineup.
I know this will sound weird coming from me since I'm usually pretty pessimistic.... but if we could somehow get that superhuman first game reaction tomorrow, the crowd might just drag us across the finish line in game 6.

Will obviously need Rinne to suddenly become superhuman again

The thug tactics of Anaheim has worked. But they gotta live with it, not me. If they "win" the cup, they still b chumps not champs.

They haven't even been especially "dirty" and I didn't see any hits against Johansen that were questionable. It's just bad luck on the Johansen injury, it happens.

Yup, it seems like something that was building up and inevitably going to happen at some point, it just happened to finally hit that breaking point last night.

Ducks have been focused on the legs, hips and heads all series long. Last night they finally succeeded in taking out two players from high and low. Scum.

I'll still cheer for the guys and hope, but to believe we can win? That's gone. Basically need Rinne to steal two games and I don't believe that happens either.

You have got to be kidding. Kesler has been using his stick illegally and often with intent to injure. They hit late frequently, especially on the boards. They commit so many penalties that the refs don't call anywhere near the number they see. All for an old school coach who doesn't know any other way. And it is highly visible.

The dirty play by the Ducks was bound to result in injuries. Joey's injury may not have come from that but it just as well could have. It's a shame the refs/NHL haven't even attempted to get a handle on things before serious injuries started to happen. Their concern for player safety seems less than zero.

I'm as devastated as anyone and the rational, pessimistic part of my brain realises how much this hurts our chances. Thankfully I also have an irrational, "team of destiny" side that spins this into the adversity that gives us the necessary drive to the finish line. No sense in lingering too long in one state of mind. Each helps balance the other.

It's just a damn shame we didn't slop one in in OT last night. Even with our depleted lineup I think we could win one game in the next 3... two will be much harder

Hav we had any further clarification on what the injury was?
It really can have been a femur fracture if he kept playing.

Sounds more like blunt trauma followed by swelling/bleeding that had to be drained emergently

There is a phenomenon called compartment syndrome where swelling in a closed "compartment" of the leg jeopardizes circulation and requires emergency intervention to relieve the pressure

I'm no doctor, but yeah, an injury involving the thigh that requires emergency surgery is usually compartment syndrome.

A. Vingan article says it's a 2-3 month recovery.

which is consistent with emergency fasciotomy (basically slicing open the leg in several places and leaving it open)... will take a while for swelling to go down, then either surgical closure or skin grafting followed by rehabbing to get strength and mobility back

I'm not sure what his off season conditioning program is now, but it was an "issue" in the past. Hopefully this time frame plugs into something that gets him full speed and ready for TC.

Yep, C.S. is what many are saying.......

Watching the video of when the injury supposedly happened----man, it just makes you sick because it looks like a nothing sequence. I mean, if that is when it happened that has to be one of the flukiest, freakish injuries ever.

And the fact that he played the rest of the game on it?? Unreal

First Fiala, now this- truly unbelievable.....

If there is any silver lining here (and I don't think in this case it even applies) but it appears at the very least this is an injury that he should (hopefully) be able to fully recover from and be ready to go next year.

When I first started hearing the rumors today of a "devastating injury" my mind started thinking about some kind of injury that could be more long term and jeopardize next season. Looks like we may at least be able to avoid that.

I also think if this does prevent us from advancing past this round, you are going to see these injuries be a huge motivating force for next season..

But the whole thing is just so devastating.

Welp, this is it. This was supposed be our year, cinderella story from the West and a rather weak opponent from the East. These kind of chances don't just come by.

Maybe we can sign and dress Taylor Lewan to goon it up with the Ducks.

Hoping to see Kamenev since he's been with the team since the Ads were eliminated. But this is depressing and the chances for a Cup are extremely low. Just winning one of the next 2 would be an accomplishment now.

I can't even imagine you have been at any of our games with the ducks.

This "it happens in hockey" excuse is ********

They are so dirty it's unbelievable

I just feel ****ing sad that it's over like this. This truly felt like our year to win it all. These kind of chances don't come by. I believed in this all the time.

It's just ****ing devastating, I'll always stand behind this team, but this one's tough to swallow.
