Tampa Bay Lightning star Steve Stamkos was leading the NHL in goals and points entering today’s game against the Boston Bruins. He will likely relinquish his lead soon, because this gruesome injury happened when he collided with the net.
We’re hoping for the best, but it didn’t look good.
Really hoping that's not serious but Stamkos pounded his fist on the ice in agony…

This is bad. Steven Stamkos is being taken off the ice with a leg injury. Shin hit the goal hard. pic.twitter.com/a3s2w6IYuL

At least there’s this:
How tough are hockey players? Stamkos probably breaks his leg and attempts to skate off the ice before collapsing.
