Holy sh*t, this is the scariest thing I've seen in years. Looks like either Lebda or Fischer is down at the bench. I swear they we doing compressions. This is not good.

They finally confirmed that it was Fischer, possibly down after taking a puck to the neck. CPR was performed but John Keating is reporting that Fischer was breathing on his own as of the last report from a witness. Fischer was not taken out of the building.

Reminds me of Pronger in the 1998 playoffs.

My wife and I were amazed and scared s***less when we saw that. There was no doubt they were doing CPR. And yes, it does bring back frightning memories of Pronger.

They're reporting now that he's breathing on his own but unconscious and has been taken to the hospital. Looks like he took a stick to the neck on the bench.

Waiting for another ambulance, they need one on hand in case of another incident, then it looks like the game will resume.

Wings are reporting that he suffered a seizure. Now in stable condition. The teams and the league are determining how the rest of the night will proceed.

I was at the game that night and boy let me tell you, it was eerie. No one had any idea what was going on. There were no announcements until they let us know Jiri was at the hospital, conscious and breathing on his own. Two of my friens kept calling me on my cell phone with updates on what was being said on TV. I'm glad Jiri is ok now. Let's hope the cause is something that can be corrected and not a career ending consition.

As bad as this is, it could turn out to be a very postive motivator to winning the cup. We all remember what happened in the summer of 97 that lead to back to back in 98. I just hope he is able to make a quick return.

Two news updates in relation to this...

The Wings doctor is now saying that he recommends Fischer not return to the ice because they can't find out what caused convulsions.

The game has been rescheduled for April 16th. I can't believe they couldn't find a better day, as this now gives the Wings four games in four days to close out the season.

Ken Daniels announced that the game will not be replayed on April 16th, but NHL.com still says it will be.
