Team: Buffalo Sabres
Watch It Here
If you've ever found it hard to relate when someone says "go for the jugular," watch this clip and you'll see what they mean. After a scramble in front of Buffalo Sabres goalie Clint Malarchuk's net, a St. Louis Blues player's skate caught Malarchuk in the neck and severed his jugular vein. Blood immediately cascaded all over the ice, reportedly causing 11 fans to pass out, two to have heart attacks, and three players to puke. Malarchuk ended up surviving thanks to the team's trainer, who had previously been a medic for the Army in Vietnam. He came back to play in the NHL until he retired in 1992.
