A scary scene tonight during the game between the Detroit Red Wings and Carolina Hurricanes.

Goaltender Eddie Lack appears to have been seriously injured in quite literally the games final moment. Detroit Red Wings forward Andreas Athanasiou was gifted a breakaway after a great save from Red Wings goalie Petr Mrazek and he made it count beating lack for the game-winning goal.

Unfortunately Lack crashed into the back of his net during the play and was quite clearly very hurt as a result. After several long moments both players surrounded the net as a stretcher was brought out for Lack.

It was a surreal and scary moment in the NHL.
