New York Rangers forward Benoit Pouliot hit Salvador and sent him flying backward into the corner boards to the left of New Jersey goalie Cory Schneider with 26.4 seconds to play. Salvador's back and the back of his head hit the boards. He tried several times to get up on his own but couldn't and needed help to get to the dressing room.
Salvador missed the entire 2010-11 season with a concussion.
He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
