  • You may remember back to February of 2008. The Flyers were playing the Rangers at the Wachovia Center when Steve Downie's skate flew up and caught linesman Pat Dapuzzo in the nose. After attempting to stitch him up, Flyers' doctors told him he couldn't go back on the ice because "he could die." The incident more than just ended his 24-year NHL career, it sent him into a harrowing journey that has gone publicly silent until now. He told his story to Chris Botta of NHL FanHouse.
