Manny Legace Trips on Sarah Palin's Ceremonial Carpet, Leaves Game
Seeing the risk, the team rolled up the portion of the carpet in front of the bench so the players could avoid stepping on it. Unfortunately, it was too late for Legace. Obviously in a bit of discomfort, Legace was seen taking a few extra stretches during warm-ups, and then proceeded to give up two goals on just 12 shots in the first period. He didn't return for the second, with the Blues saying he had suffered a "lower body injury." There's no word yet as to how much time he'll miss.
Video of the incident is after the jump.
