Eric Staal’s Bloody Mess
Hurricanes’ captain Eric Staal apparently got clipped with a high stick and bled all over the inside right circle during the second period of Tuesday’s game. Not until the ice resurfacer ran over it did the stain disappear.
This would be Staal’s contribution to the Inova blood drive recently held by the Caps. Photos of the cleanup effort after the jump.
