Clint Malarchuk of the Buffalo Sabres is nearly killed in a horrific collision at the goal crease in a game against the St. Louis Blues at The Aud. During a collision with Sabres defenseman Uwe Krupp, Steve Tuttle’s skate comes up and slices the goalie’s throat causing a pool of blood. If not quick actions of the Sabres medical staff, Malarchuk would have died. Despite the traumatic injury, Clint Malarchuk played again ten days later.
