Did You See That? Stephane Robidas leaves on stretcher

Stephane Robidas lay on the ice, clutching his right leg in obvious agony. 

The Dallas Stars defenceman was writhing in pain after a fluke accident sent him crashing into the boards against the Chicago Blackhawks during the second period on Friday night. 

The team later announced the veteran blue-liner suffered a broken leg on the play and was carried off on a stretcher. 

Robidas was trying to defend against Chicago's Jonathan Toews, who attempted a centring pass that got caught up in the 36-year-old's skate, causing his leg to bend awkwardly.
