Gibbons might be injured after scoring twice for Pens

Apr 19, 2014, 8:36 PM EDT

A lot happened in 2:26 of ice time for Pittsburgh Penguins forward Brian Gibbons in Game 2 against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday.

The speedy, under-sized forward scored two goals and appeared to suffer an injury during that very limited amount of time. Gibbons, 26, left early in the first period and hasn’t returned to action yet in the middle frame. As usual with these low-info playoffs, it’s unclear if this is a significant injury.

(For one quick example: it looked like St. Louis Blues defenseman Jay Bouwmeester was injured in Game 1 of his series, but it turned out that he was probably only dealing with cramps.)

On the bright side, Gibbons made a huge impact in a brief period of time. Here are video clips for both of his tallies from today:

    Pierre Maguire: I’ll wait to see if the injury is bad. Maybe “His Majesty Sidney Crosby” can do the Mr Miagi thing on him when he claps his hands. I’ve seen him do it. He’s cured the blind!
