2012 NHL Playoffs, Blues Vs. Sharks Game 2: Jaroslav Halak Taken Down By Barret Jackman

In an unfortunate turn of events for the Blues, defenseman Barret Jackman collided with Jaroslav Halak in a tough hit that was unavoidable. Jackman dropped for a block, and popped up too quickly to change direction. He slammed into Halak, whiplashing him a bit. Halak laid on the ice for a minute or two, and after a conference with the trainer Halak left the ice.


Brian Elliott came in in relief of Halak, who is presumably being checked for concussion symptoms. Putting in Elliott isn’t a detriment for the Blues, so breathe easy, fans.
