Video: Vitale hurt from knee-on-knee collision with Comeau

17 Comments

Pittsburgh Penguins forward Joe Vitale received an interference minor due to a knee-on-knee collision with Columbus’ Blake Comeau, but that might be the least of his worries.

Both forwards went down as a result of the hit, but Comeau has since returned while Vitale has not.

You can see what happened below:

It’s hard to say if Vitale was out for revenge after Comeau delivered a crushing hit just prior. Pittsburgh also lost Brandon Sutter on a separate play, so this is turning into a potentially costly game for the Penguins, regardless of what the final score is.
