#1 Joe in Toronto for the Eastern Conference Stanley Cup Qualifiers the Toronto Maple Leafs Jake Muzzin left Tuesday’s game two against the Columbus Blue Jackets after a collision at 1:52 in the third period. Previous to the injury he had three block shots mostly on penalty kills before he had to be taken off by stretcher.
#2 Muzzin after the hit was talking to the medical staff and was able to move his extremities he was secured to a gurney and wheeled off the ice to a very concerned Leafs and Jackets benches looking on.
#3 The Leafs head coach Sheldon Keefe said that Muzzin was responsive and the Leafs say that Muzzin was released from the hospital and will not play the remainder of the qualifier series and will quarantine in a Toronto hotel until he’s ready to come back and play again.
#4 Joe, there was very little doubt that the game between the Florida Panthers and New York Islanders the Panthers were fighting for their qualifier lives getting a one goal 3-2 win. The Isles who need just one more win to move onto the next round will have to wait and try again in game four on Thursday night.
#5 Key goals came from the Panthers Mike Hoffman and Brian Boyle scoring in the third period as the as the Panthers down 2-1 were able to tie and move ahead of the Islanders to save their playoff hopes.
