scary sight at rexall place

a scary sight at rexall place last night between the edmonton read runners and the manitoba moose. jaret stoll of edmonton trying to take out a manitoba player and as he fell on the ice, the manitoba player inadvertenly stepped on stolly's calf. and boy did stolly realize it right away. his leg was a mess. don't know how bad it really got, but that motivated the rest of the road runners as the snapped a 6 game losing streak by winning 3-1. i think that was manitobas 4th road loss.
