Detroit Red Wings forward JT Compher has unfortunately suffered a scary skate blade injury to his face.

The Red Wings found themselves in a crucial game tonight against the Montreal Canadiens, needing a win combined with a loss by the Washington Capitals to secure a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time since 2016.

However, their hopes took a hit just minutes into the game at Bell Centre when one of their key players, forward J.T. Compher, was involved in a scary incident on the ice. Compher, who scored twice in last night's win over the Canadiens in Detroit, was cut by the skate blade of Montreal's Juraj Slafkovský and had to leave the ice for repairs.

Compher took a skate to the face and had to leave the game. Hopefully, it's not too serious.




The Detroit Red Wings came up short in their quest for a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, despite securing a thrilling 5-4 shootout victory over the Montreal Canadiens at Bell Centre on Tuesday.


David Perron scored the tying goal with just five seconds remaining in the third period, unleashing a powerful slap shot from the point through heavy traffic.


While this briefly kept Detroit's playoff hopes alive, the Washington Capitals sealed the deal for the second wild card spot in the Eastern Conference with a 2-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers shortly after.
