    Significant injuries in Boston sports history

    Trent Kenneth McCleary of the Boston Bruins. McCleary's career was cut short during a home game on January 29, 2000. While attempting to block a shot by Philadelphia Flyers player Chris Therien, he was accidentally struck in the throat by the flying puck. An emergency tracheotomy had to be performed at the Molson Centre, a procedure that saved his life. Several surgeries were required before he could regain his speech.

    Don't forget Boston Celtic Tiny Archibald's separated shoulder in game 3 of Eastern Conference NBA finals against 76ers in 1982.

    Archibald never returned during that series. The 76ers beat Boston in seven, thwarting the Celtics' opportunity to repeat as champs and ruining our chance to watch the Cs take on the Lakers and Magic that year in the NBA finals.

    A consolation: Celtic fans chant "Beat LA" as 76ers rout the Cs in Boston in game 7 of eastern conference finals.

    Harry Agganis was having a great year for Red Sox in 1955, I think, when he was struck down by meningitis and passed away.

    I know this one goes back aways but what about Smokey Joe Wood. After his incredible season in 1912 seems to me he suffered an injury to his pitching arm that ended his career as a pitcher. He tried his luck as an everyday player but was only average. Ask the oldtimers in the back room. Someone should remember this.


    People that remember game 7 of the 1946 World Series should recall that the reason Leon Culberson was playing centerfield was because Dom Dimaggio had injured himself the inning before. Enos Slaughter, knowing that Culberson didn't have the arm that Dimaggio had scored from first base on a base hit by the following Cardinals batter.

    I agree w/ others about Teddy Green. Also, Bill Russell in 1957 or 58? Geez, I'm really getting old. But it shows that those two from way back aren't included. This is a society that has no memory beyond 5 minues ago. Green's injury was right up there w/ Daryl Stingley's for a cheap shot. And Russell? How's about 12 rings in 13 seasons.

    How about in 1985 Tony Eason got hurt during the 6th game of the season with Steve Grogan taking over to lead the team to 6 straight wins, on the way to the Super Bowl. Then in the 12th game Steve Grogan's leg was broken by a Jets cheap shot, then Tony Eason took over unil the 2nd Qtr of the Superbowl.

    Sticking with the Pats, in the final "preseason" game of 1989 the team lost Ronnie Lippett, Andre Tippett and Garin Veris for the entire season with injuries.

    Significant injuries in Boston sports history

    in 1985 the Patriots started the season with Tony Eason, who led the team to a 2-3 record. Coach Berry started Grogan in game 6 which led to six (6) straight wins behind old Grog, only to lose Steve when he suffered a broken leg against the New York Jets in Week 11 . Eason managed to get the team to the Super Bowl through a wildcard berth, going 3-2 the remaining 5 games of reg. Grogan was cleared to come back for Super Bowl XX, only to be defeated by Da' Bears 46-10. VERY SAD!

    Probably a lot of flack for adding this to the list, but in 1988 and 1991 when the Bruins were in the Stanely Cup finals, they lost their best defensive forward prior to each final. Steve Kasper, a known Gretzky "specialist" didn't suit up for the finals, nor did Dave Poulin three years later. Maybe the B's didn't have a shot in either of those series, but those players may have made a difference in each case.

    In 1985 the Patriots started the season with Tony Eason, who led the team to a 2-3 record.

Eason managed to get the team into the playoffs through a wild card berth, going 3-2 the remaining 5 games of reg.

    Ted Green, former Boston Bruin, suffered one of the scariest injuries in NHL history in 1969. A stick swinging incident with Wayne Maki of the St. Louis Blues. The two began swinging their sticks at each other during an exhibition game in Ottowa. The altercation ended when Maki clubbed Green on the head baseball swing style. That resulted in life threatening injuries to Green with three major operations were required to save his life. The left side of his body was paralyzed and it seemed obvious he would never play again.

    The Boston Globe WOEFULLY forgot Reggie Lewis - who went down from a fluttering heart in a playoff game against the Charlotte Hornets.

    He went on to die and the legacy of the Celtics in the 90s died with him.

    BIG OVERSIGHT GUYS...

    Significant injuries in Boston sports history

    The bigger question is the impact of the team performance due to the injury. Although the Daryl Stingley, Travis Roy, Cam Neely, etc injuries were career ending and life theatening, their teams survived and continued to prosper.

    I feel the Pats are going to struggle to make .500 without Brady. They went from having the best QB situation in the NFL to the worst QB situation in the NFL in one play. The Patriots need to find a serviceable QB who will keep them in contention since they do have a great supporting cast on offense. Matt Cassel would fail to be the third string QB for half the teams in the NFL. The only situation where the team performance suffered due to a specific injury is Larry Bird in 1988 - 1989. They went from Eastern Conference runner up to the eighth seed in 1989.
