During the exciting first round matchup between the Flyers and the Capitals last night, Flyers Winger Patrick Thoresen put his body on the line to stop a potential shot by one of the Capitals. I’m sure that he wasn’t planning on it almost costing him as much as it did.
Thoresen was hit in the groin area and of course, was in a tremendous amount of pain and to add insult to injury, the Caps ended up scoring on the play. Thoresen was still on the ground in pain at the time. Thats how you take one for the team. Heres a video of the injury:
It was initially thought that he might have to have a testicle removed but fortunately for him the tests came back negative and both his balls will be ok. He was released from the hospital today and could be back for game two. Let this be a lesson to all of you, don’t be like this idiot, always wear a cup.
