Steve Downie Taken to Hospital After the Game


The Flyers just suffered a 7-0 loss to the Capitals, but that’s not the worst thing to come out of this game.

Vincent Lecavalier suffered injuries to his face, and – worse – newly acquired Steve Downie suffered a concussion.

Downie suffered the concussion in a fight with Capitals winger Aaron Volpatti.

After the game, an unknown player was seen rushed on an ambulance from a stretcher.

Paul Holmgren has since revealed that the player is indeed Downie, and he is headed to the University of Pennsylvania hospital.

More updates on Downie’s condition to come.
