Teammate Nearly Decapitates Own Goalie With a Slash

The Florida Panthers were in Atlanta to play the Thrashers and midway through the first period, already tied 1-1, Ilya Kovalchuk came flying in on a breakaway. Despite the efforts of goalie Tomas Vokoun who stymied the first attempt but was unable to stop the rebound shot from going into the net. Frustrated with his team’s lack of defensive skill, Keith Ballard took out his aggression on his stick. Unluckily, when Ballard slammed his stick against the post, breaking it, the end of the stick struck his goaltender, lacerating his ear. Oops!

Vokoun left the ice and was taken to a local hospital, but should ultimately be fine.
