Brutal Incident Sends Tavares to Hospital.
Maple Leafs captain John Tavares was taken off the ice on a stretcher after suffering a horrifying injury in his team’s Stanley Cup Playoff game yesterday against the Canadiens. During the first period, Tavares took a huge hit from Canadiens Ben Chiarot, and as he was falling to the ice, unintentionally collided with the knee of Corey Perry.

As you can see, Tavares tried to get back up but the hit was just too much. One of the most beautiful things however, was seeing the trainer, his teammates and Kyle Dubas immediately rushing to Tavares attention.
