The Bell Centre had its share of scary moments through the years; from Trent McCleary getting a puck in the throat, to Donald Audette almost losing a hand on the ice to Max Pacioretty almost beheaded by a freak body check by Chara.....Saturday night's incident with Philip Danault ranks right up there with them. He could've legit been killed if that puck had hit the right spot. Thankfully, he already had his hospital release but I'm not expecting him back in the lineup any time soon.

I watched both live when it happened. I remember after Audette got his wrist cut by a blade, he ran to the dressing room and jumped to open the door and it was locked. Could not believe it.

Hoping for the best for Danault.
