Things were looking so bad for the Toronto Maple Leafs during the second period, you almost expected for Kasperi Kapanen‘s crucial 2-2 goal to be reviewed offside.

Nikita Zaitsev, Toronto’s top minute-eating defenseman, already entered the playoffs on the shelf. It sure looks like Roman Polak could miss some serious time, too, after a painful-looking fall following a hit by Caps blueliner Brooks Orpik.
You can watch that hit and tumble in the GIF below (video will be added soon) … again, it doesn’t look promising.
