The Leafs/Pens game is on at CBC right now and it's the second I leave the room that I come back in and see a Leafs player on the floor with doctors and such surrounding him. Apparently Petrovicky and Newbury got into a fight and due to that something happened to Newbury that knocked him out? I'm not sure, but by the looks..it seemed like a really scary moment.

Hope he'll be fine!!

Btw, the game is kick ass. Pens were up 3-0 in the second and then the Leafs tied it 3-3 with 15 seconds left and then they scored to make it 4-3 in the third, Pens then tied it, and Leafs scored to make it 5-4, and now it's tied again at 5!

I watched it, holy crap im sure glad i had this game on! Quick unexpected fight off the faceoff, after a few seconds of jostling both went toe to toe and Petro smoked him. From what i could see Newbury's head didnt appear to smack the ice causing the KO....looked like a punch did all of the damage. I havent seen anything like this since geez...Kypreos/Vandenbussche maybe. Ironically Kypreos was also a Leaf...



Newbury was on the ice for at least 5 minutes and carried off on a stretcher.
Aaron Downey tally = 4 Wins (Mclaren, PARROS, *Laperriere*, Wisniewski) - 1 L (**Boll**) - 5 Draws (Walker, Fedoruk, Davison, Shelley, O'Donnell)

(* = beatdown) (** = at the end of a shift)

Preseason prediction - Anaheim over Philadelphia in 6 (ok, well i'll settle for one right...)

Damn! Of course it happens the second I leave. Hopefully he'll be okay. It sounds like he knocked him out from the punches? You can tell Petrovicky feels like s***.

Kypreos..man that was some scary stuff.

I'm watching it, too... looked like a punch or two did the damage. They kept showing Petrovicky in the box, shaking his hand and wincing, so he's probably messed his hand up. Hope it was worth it. Here's hoping Newbury is OK.

10 goals so far in this game... wow.

OT at the moment. Are we headed for a shootout? yowza.gif

Yeah it looked like Petro landed a couple in the brief flurry, with the last one totally flooring him in devastating fashion!

Yay, Buffalo!!! 3-2 in SO. They have to be the kings of shootout wins in the NHL. I watched most of this one, going back and forth between it and Leafs/ Pens.



In other news, Florida is beating Phoenix, 5-1 with 5 minutes left in the third

I just heard that he suffered a seizure when he got knocked out?!

They say he's doing fine now. Thank God!

I can't see that one (Nashvl/LA) on Center Ice, wonder why? I have Atlanta/Vancouver and the end of Carolina/MN. But not Nashville/Kings. I don't get it, literally. Watching the scoreboard. dry.gif

Nobody likes to see a player get carried out on a stretcher like that, but damn that was a great KO by Petrovicky. I thought it would really fire up the Pens but then the Leafs went out and scored that 5th goal shortly afterward. Great job by Staal getting the hat trick in OT. Great game to watch.

Well, Newbury is said to be OK, no skull or spinal fractures. He did in fact hit his head off the ice, it just wasn't the pronounced thud that one would normally look for. To further that point, he did attempt to throw a punch on his way down.

Looks like he may be lucky (if you can even call it that) to just end up with a severe concussion.

This was a great game, i was watching this on Cbc in HD... But anyway to the fight, it was pretty much domination by the pens player through some solid punches and Newbury just pretty much ate them.. It's always scary to see a player get taken off on a stretcher.. Hopefully he'll be ok... Stall get's his first hat trick of the year, Congrads Stall your family is a great hockey family

Yeah i just saw it again and his head did indeed hit the ice.

It was already 5-5 when the fight happened.

Hopefully this won't provide more fodder for those "No more fighting!" peeps. I was listening to XM 204 last night and they had on...uhm...crap, I'm forgetting his name. Used to play for the Leafs back in the 70's, Walker I think was his name. He said that yes, sometimes you'd see injuries like that occur due to a fight...but they're so rare. He also still thinks that fighting DOES police the game better...more respect and all that.

(paraphrasing)
"Sticks didn't get up high. There was no such thing as 'checking from behind' when I played. You just didn't do that. If a guy was prone, you let off. That kind of respect is missing from the game today."

Wait, did I just go horribly off topic...?
