Video: Vladislav Namestnikov bloodied by puck to face

Injuries have been brutal to the Tampa Bay Lightning, so Vladislav Namestnikov can’t complain too much. At least not in that specific locker room.

Still, it’s been a bumpy season – literally and figuratively – for the young forward, and that trend continued with a painful moment on Thursday.

Namestnikov was the unlucky, bloodied recipient of a William Nylander shot to the face, as you can see in the video above.

With Auston Matthews also suffering from a few painful moments, the Leafs and Lightning may both need extra ice packs/bandages after this game.
