    Anyone seen this? Miracle he's allegedly in stable condition.

    Is this gonna be a Clint Malarchuk-type thing?
    If so, hope this turns out the same.

    Actually, I forgot...Malarchuk ended up in a crippling depression.
    Let's hope for a full recovery - for both.

    Ouch. Even if Zednik weren't a former Capital, I'd be sickened. Yikes.

    I agree with the sentiment that they shouldn't have finished the game. I don't want to compare situations, but it would have been maybe one rung below forcing the teams to finish the game where Mike Coolbaugh was killed by the line drive.

    And yes, Clint Malarchuk is also a former Capital. I'm convinced that team is cursed.

    Just saw a clip (not too close up or gory, thank God) on ESPN.
    Frightening stuff.

    Reportedly in stable condition after surgery.

    They aren't cursed...a lot of good players were with them in the 80's and 90's.

    Happened in the same town? Malarchuk and Zednik?

    I wonder how many of the SoFla papers had someone up there?

    I don't think so, but both players were Washington Capitals at one time. I don't think they were actually teammates though.

    That is really freaky.

    That Malarchuk thing remains one of the most amazing things I've ever seen. the things that had to go right for him not to die on the ice boggle the mind.
