    Looked like his skate got caught in the ice and his knee got obliterated. Damn...that looks like a bad one.

    Yeah, his knee looks completely destroyed. He was in agony, too.

    Oh the knees and ankles that have fallen prey to ruts in corners.

    Winced big time watching that. I don't think the Panthers are getting enough credit for what they're doing, at least it seems like it to me. I hope he's alright.

    Tough break for a guy that was having a great year. Saw Yandle speaking after the game. Maybe I wasn't following closely enough when he was with the Rangers but he just seems like such a good dude. Maybe the Spittin Chiclets podcast has helped changed my opinion of him too.

    I'm glad to see it was only a broken leg. Judging by his reaction on the ice, I was afraid that it could be a mild groin strain.

    It looked awful and if there's no ligament damage he'll be ready for the start of the next season.
