Last night as the overtime, game winning goal was being scored, Eddie Lack went down with what looks like a horrible injury after a collision with Andreas Athanasiou.

Major props to the Red Wings players who stuck around as Lack was secured and stretchered off the ice. Let’s hope that Eddie recovers well and soon.
In other game action the Preds, tonight’s visiting team at the Garden, defeated the Islanders 3-1, allowing no gain on the Bruins for that final wild card slot. The Bolts won in OT against the Hawks, pulling within one point of the Bruins. Can’t all these other teams just lose already?
