Grabovski and concussions
Newsday's Arthur Staple is reporting that Mikhail Grabovski awoke with concussion symptoms Friday following the hit by John Scott on Thursday.
Grabovski has a bit of a concussion history -- dating back to a 2011 game with Boston.
Check out these hits by Zdeno Chara:
Grabovski came back from these hits and scored the winning goal in that game.
At the time, the Leafs (Brian Burke) denied that he had suffered a concussion but the following summer, Grabovski had a different story:
Grabovski was also involved in an incident toward the end of Chris Pronger's career, when they follow-thru of Grabovski' shot hit Pronger in the face -- Pronger would play only five more NHL games after that incident.
