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.
Torts has no update on Marc Staal’s health after he takes puck in/around the eye”it’s scary”

UPDATE: Staal did not go to the hospital, hopefully this bodes well for the condition of his eye.
Rangers say as of right now Marc Staal hasn’t been sent to a hospital. Hopefully that’s good news but can’t say for sure
