Didn't even know he broke his nose yesterday...

Helm got hurt his first shift when he was hit by Flyers forward Ian Laperriere (the same guy who knocked Nicklas Lidstrom into the boards while a member of the Colorado Avalanche).

X-rays taken immediately after the game revealed a small break.

"If it's broken, it's broken," Helm said. "It happened my first five seconds."

Helm scored a goal, and was part of the Wings' overall best line, along with Dan Cleary and Patrick Eaves.

That dude IS heart. Exactly the kind of player that belongs on this team.

I still think Lappy should be suspended for that hit.

Don't most players play on with broken noses? I can remember at least two occasions in a game where they broke it early in the game and came back later in the same game.

Why wouldn't he have? A broken nose is not cause to miss a shift unless it's to get the bleeding stopped.
"It was pretty interesting," said Detroit coach Mike Babcock. "We had May in exhibition for a couple of games and no one gets hacked or whacked. When we don't have him, we get run. We don't have a team that twists off helmets at stoppages. You get tired of seeing it all the time. It's just nice when you get someone to look after that stuff."

"I assure you the hits along the boards he(Aaron Downey) constantly threw SEVERAL TIMES EVERY SHIFT were far more damaging hits that what Kronwall throws."

He's a hockey player, I wouldn't expect anything less.

Although I love Helm, he never takes a shift off and is pretty much a perfect energy player(if only he could fight :unsure: ).

Charging, I don't think the stick went up... is it a 5 min major as the second choice? It wasn't as bad as some past hits, but it wasn't clean in the least.

I was at the game and did not have the benefit of an instant replay...but it certainly looked like a big time elbow from my vantage point

... compared to a hangnail.

Seriously though, a broken nose is not that big of a deal.
I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, I'm going to mop the floor with your face.
I said, You'll be sorry.
He said, Oh, yeah? Why?
I said, Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well.
