Thank goodness for helmets

Tragedy was avoided last night in an on-ice involving Brandon Dubinsky of the New York Rangers and Tyler Myers of the Buffalo Sabres. During a scruffle in front of the Buffalo Sabres’ net, Myers was flipped on to the ice with his skate scraping the side of Dubinsky’s helmet. Good thing that NHL players are required to wear helmets. Sure, there are those who argue that helmets invite more blows to the head (at least according to the old-timers from the pre-helmet days). Yet, I am sure after seeing this they may have second thoughts about that position.
