The NHL Playoffs = Great Injuries

Ruptured spleens, broken orbital bones, and crushed testicles it can mean only one thing the NHL Playoffs. Hockey players do not know when to slow down, every year you see a great variety of injuries and this year is not different.
  • Shawn Avery, Rangers: ruptured spleen.
  • Kimmo Timonen, Flyers: blood clot in his ankle.
  • Brandon Coburn, Flyers: swollen and battered face
  • Patrick Thoresen, Flyers: puck to the groin.
This is only a sampling of it, but when is the last time you heard of another athlete taking one in the family jewels to help his team out.
