Eric Fehr: Whew.

Midway through the second period of the Washington Capitals game against the Anaheim Ducks, Caps defenseman John Carlson had an oopsy. As Captain America attempted to clear down the ice, he nailed Eric Fehr right in the side of the head with the puck.

Not good. Commence freaking out.

As play was stopped for icing, CSN panned to Fehr, and he was somehow okay. Even Fehr looked surprised and relieved.

So kids, this is why you wear visors.

    Anyone remember a Caps-Bolts game when Green shattered Nate Thompson’s visor with a shot? I hate to think how badly he would have been injured without it. As it was, Thompson was bleeding.

    Make it to one game a year and that’s the one I picked last year. Was sitting right over Thompson when he went down. Thought he was a goner. To see the power from Greens slapper up close like that was scary.
