The Montreal Canadiens had an impressive showing last night, winning 4-2 over the Dallas Stars, coming home with a victory that was, unfortunately, overshadowed by a disastrous incident. Forward Andrew Shaw left Tuesday’s game with what was most likely a head injury.

And we know what you’re thinking – yes, another one! Shaw made contact with Dallas Stars – and former Habs – defenseman Greg Pateryn midway through the third period, but got the worst of the head-to-head collision, which sent him crashing hard into the boards. Pateryn was uninjured on the play, and even attempt to retaliate before realizing Shaw was hurt and stopped short of punching him to allow teammates and medical staff to take a close look at him.
Shaw, who has a history of concussions, needed to be helped off the ice and dragged into the dressing room. The team has yet to diagnose anything but is keeping him “under close evaluation” as Shaw could be diagnosed with his fifth concussion… Fifth!

And we are talking serious recent head injuries. Last spring, the gritty forward sustained a similar injury after a head-on collision with Brady Skeji in Game One of the Stanley Cup Playoffs against the New York Rangers. There were other intense hits in the remainder of the series, which forced Shaw to sit out during the sixth game of the first round. Probably the fight that took place against Brendan Smith during Game 5 didn’t help.

In an interview with Sportsnet‘s Eric Engels, he revealed the extent of some of his symptoms saying adding he’d wake up in the middle of the night puking and worried if there was something really wrong with him: “I wasn’t sleeping right. My emotions were all out of whack; I’d be happy, angry, sad, irritated, anxiety — stuff I’d never experienced before… I was in my room in my house for a month in the dark with depression issues, being sad and miserable. My anxiety was through the roof.”
