The Hardest Hit of All

New, comment
It seems like the most dangerous hits in hockey are those when neither player sees it coming. Just a few minutes ago, Mike Knuble and Brendan Shanahan collided nastily during the 3rd period of today's Rangers/Flyers tilt. Knuble was down for a while and had to be helped off the ice, while Shanny lay motionless for several minutes, and was taken off on a stretcher. He seemed alert and responsive, and was moving his limbs, so hopefully his trip to the hospital is more precautionary than anything else, but that was a scary situation.

Update: During the intermission of the Senators/Thrashers game, word came that Shanahan is alert and seems to be OK at the hospital.
