It seems like Eric Nystrom is OK

The Nashville Predators haven’t received much good news lately, but it sounds like Eric Nystrom‘s upper-body injury might not be too bad.

At least, he was able to reassure fans on Twitter following Friday’s 4-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins:

Don’t you just hate when that happens?

Here’s video of Tanner Glass popping him behind his earhole:

Nystrom might be underselling things a bit.

    I’m getting real tired of NHL players targeting the back of the head in fights. This isn’t even legal in MMA. First it was Emery, now Glass. As a pens fan, I found no joy in watching that fight.

    Nystrom picked the wrong guy to go after. Great hit. Great fight.
