During Tuesday night’s game between the New York Rangers and the Philadelphia Flyers, Rangers’ defenseman Marc Staal was hit directly in the eye by a Kimmo Timonen slapshot.

The way Staal went down was scary, so right now I’m not going to turn this into a debate about NHLers being forced to wear visors.

I just hope Marc Staal is okay.

UPDATE: Staal did not go to the hospital, hopefully this bodes well for the condition of his eye.
