While talking to reporters during the first intermission of Game 4 on Wednesday night, Robidas got emotional when asked about the disappointment of missing the rest of the playoffs.
Robidas was hurt early in the second period of Game 3 when he was undercut by Ryan Garbutt, who was diving for a puck.
Robidas broke the same leg in the same building Nov. 29 while still playing for Dallas, which traded him to Anaheim last month. Robidas says this break is above where he had a rod surgically inserted for the previous break.
Garbutt reached out to Robidas, who told his former teammate not to worry about it.
Jamie improves every game and every year. I've only been with him for two years, but as a player and as a person it seems like every week he's getting stronger and better, and becoming a better leader and better captain. He wants the team to be so successful that he's making himself better as a player.
