Veteran defenseman Mike Komisarek was victimized by Marcus Foligno on the memorable Jordan Leopold goal late in regulation that tied the Toronto Maple Leafs' last visit to Buffalo in April. Relive the crazy video above. There won't be any rematch of Komisarek-Foligno battles tonight.
The Toronto blueliner will miss the game in First Niagara Center due to some sort of bizarre eye injury suffered in practice Monday. Terry Koshan of the Toronto Sun has the full story, including the money quote from Leafs coach Randy Carlyle: "One of those things that you would like to take back in your life I think — when you do something stupid. It was crazy."
Mark Zwolinski of the Toronto Star has a similar theory to Koshan: There's some thought the injury occurred when Komisarek smashed a stick.
