There's been no update on Rangers defenseman Marc Staal, who left the game after taking a deflected puck in the eye. He did not go to the hospital, which is great news. (The puck appears to have struck just above the soft tissue, in the brow or orbit. It was only a matter of chance and of millimeters if his actual eye was spared damage.) Staal went down like a stone, blood spotting the ice around him, the Flyers signaling for medical staff to hurry over. It was a gruesome and scary scene, and a familiar one.
