Parros left the ice on a stretcher at 2:34 of the third period after hitting the ice hard during a fight with Toronto Maple Leafs forward Colton Orr. The game was interrupted at least 10 minutes while Parros was attended to and eventually taken off on a stretcher.
I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
