NHL's top scorer (and Team Canada top 3 forward) Steven Stamkos is out for an indeterminate amount of time after breaking his leg while crashing into the net after being tied up by Boston Bruins' Dougie Hamilton.

Steven Stamkos is out for an indeterminate amount of time

Was watching this one on TV while taking a Naproxen Sodium break from leaf raking. It was flat ugly watching in real time, and even worse in slow motion. Stamkos' frustration when he realized how seriously he was hurt was clear. Like any hockey fan, I'm really sorry to see a player like Stamkos be out of the game for any length of time. Lost in the magnitude of Stamkos being hurt was Sammy Salo going down shortly after Stamkos, and then Aulie being hurt in the 3rd period. Altogether a bad day for the NHL, and a worse one for Tampa.

This is how my fantasy team dies...

That said, I wish Stamkos a full and speedy recovery...
