s lineup could see mixing and matching from zhaoqi123's blog

MONTREAL - The sight of George Parros laid out on the ice cast a long shadow on Tuesday. Stefan Savic Atletico Madrid Jersey . Parros suffered a concussion early in the third period of the Montreal Canadiens 4-3 home-opener loss to the rival Toronto Maple Leafs after slamming face first into the ice during a fight. Parros was knocked unconscious after a tussle with Colton Orr - their second fight of an unruly game - brought him tumbling to the ice. He fell hard on his chin while attempting to punch Orr, who was tugging at Parros jersey. "Thanks for all the well wishes everyone," said Parros from his verified Twitter account a few hours after the game, adding the hashtag "classyfollowers." The hard-hitting Canadiens forward spent several minutes motionless on the ice, attended to by the teams medical staffs, before being taken off on a stretcher. The Canadiens announced that he was released from hospital on Wednesday morning and is out indefinitely. "You never want to see a guy get hurt like that," said Orr. "It was a scary situation. I just hope hes all right. "It happened fast. I slipped and he came on top of me. The ice isnt going to give." Parros and Orr have a long history. The two have fought each other several times in the past, and Orr was injured in a similar fight with Parros two years ago at Torontos Air Canada Centre. Parros, then with the Anaheim Ducks, landed on Orr, who suffered a concussion and didnt play for the rest of that season. Parros teammates are hoping he will be back with the team soon. "Any time you see a guy go down — no matter what team hes on — its pretty scary," said Canadiens captain Brian Gionta. "Hopefully things are all right, and that hell bounce back quickly. "Its tough. You have a guy whos coming into a new team and he wants to establish himself. He had a good game tonight stepping up for his guys and protecting his guys. You never like to see him go down like that." Shortly after the incident, Torontos Mason Raymond — in his first game with the Leafs — put the game out of Montreals reach, scoring the eventual game-winner. Brendan Gallagher thinks his team didnt react as well as they could have after Parros injury. "Your emotions take you for a little bit of a ride," said Gallagher. "We would have liked to respond better. Its tough to see your teammate down. Were human and we react like humans. "When it happens, its tough. But as soon as the puck drops, you get back to playing. Knowing him and knowing the person he is, hell recover and be in our lineup in no time." Parros injury could reignite the debate about whether fighting has a place in hockey. But Josh Gorges doesnt think it should. "I see more players get hurt from hits, collisions, from pucks, than I do from fights," said Gorges. "I dont think saying because a player got hurt in a fight that now we have to talk about taking fighting away. And I bet that if you ask George (Parros), hell be the first to agree with me on that one too." Parros joined Montreal this summer after one season with the Florida Panthers. Tuesdays game was his first in a Canadiens uniform. Montreals next game is Saturday, Oct. 5, at home against the Philadelphia Flyers. Alvaro Arbeloa Jersey .

Remember the Titans (2000)Sure this plot has been done to death. SEATTLE -- Josh Hamiltons attempt to beat out an infield grounder with a headfirst slide into first base landed him on the bench for up to two months. The 2010 AL MVP was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday by the Los Angeles Angels with a torn ligament in his left thumb. He was hurt trying to hustle down the line and beat out a grounder in the seventh inning of Tuesday nights loss to Seattle. Hamilton was thrown out, but the consequences of his decision ended up being far greater. "The news sucks. Anytime you play and youre playing hard and having fun, the last thing you want to do is do something that is going to cause you to miss time and maybe hurt your team in the long run," Hamilton said. "If I could see the future, obviously, I wouldnt do it." Los Angeles said an MRI Wednesday revealed a complete tear of the thumbs ulnar collateral ligament. After initially saying hand and wrist specialist Dr. Steven Shin would operate at Kerlan-Jobe Orthopedics in Los Angeles, the Angels said Hamilton will be examined by Shin on Friday to determine whether surgery is needed. Hamilton was placed on the 15-day disabled list, and outfielder J.B. Shuck was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake. Hamilton said he believed it was just a jammed thumb, but when he tried throwing in the outfield between innings he knew something might be wrong. Hamilton told manager Mike Scioscia to have someone pinch hit for him in the ninth. Ian Stewart batted for Hamilton and struck out with the potential tying run on base in a 5-3 loss. "Its definitely unfortunate but I think as a team you have to be able to absorb and be deep enough to absorb injuries to players and Josh is a special talent who is off to a great start for us. Well do our best to fill that void," Scioscia said. &qquot;Over the years, weve had a lot of our key players miss significant time, but weve been able to absorb it and move on. Real Madrid Jersey. Thats what we have to focus on doing now for the next six, eight weeks, whatever the time frame is going to end up being." Scioscia said the Angels lineup could see mixing and matching while Hamilton is out. Collin Cowgill was in the lineup in left field and leading off, with Kole Calhoun dropped to sixth in the order and Howie Kendrick moved up to Hamiltons usual No. 5 slot. A five-time All-Star, Hamilton has struggled since signing a $125 million, five-year contract with the Angels before the 2013 season. He hit a career-low .250 last year with 21 homers and 79 RBIs, his poorest power numbers since 2009. He was batting .207 with 25 RBIs through June 23, then hit .289 with 54 RBIs during the rest of the season. Hamilton strained a calf muscle during a baserunning drill on Feb. 25 and didnt play in his first spring training game until March 17. He is hitting .444 with two homers and six RBIs in 27 at-bats this season. Hamilton believes he can still keep his timing down with his swing even while hes sidelined. "Disappointing in general that youve got to miss some time, because as a player you prepare the whole off-season to come in and do what you can to help contribute to your team winning ballgames," he said. "Thats the most disappointing part of the injury." The injury rekindled the debate about sliding into first base. Hamilton wasnt the only player to make that choice in Tuesdays game. Seattles Michael Saunders had an awkward slide into first base running out a ground ball. "Its just part of who I am. Ive done that a lot," Hamilton said. "Who knows if I will ever do that again?"
