Lost in the whirlwind of euphoria accompanying last night's slamming of the New York Rangers into The Hertl Locker was the fact that Rangers star Rick Nash left the game minutes in with concussion-like symptoms. The cause was a hit to the head by Sharks defenseman Brad Stuart, playing his first game of the regular season. The league announced today that Stuart will have a meeting with the Department of Player Safety and ESPN's Pierre LeBrun confirmed that it will be over the phone, meaning Stuart can't be suspended for more than five games. Here's a look at the best angle of the hit available, courtesy the MSG broadcast feed of the game. The principal point of contact is somewhat obscured but it isn't difficult to piece together that Stuart very likely launched his left elbow at Nash's head. The officials clearly agreed with that take, issuing the defenseman a minor for elbowing. The hit isn't dissimilar to the one Anton Volchenkov was suspended four games for administering to Brad Marchand in April. Given the fact that Nash was injured on the play and, as much as it shouldn't matter but obviously does, is a marketable star on a huge-market team, I wouldn't be surprised with a similar punishment for Stuart. Still, the video is inconclusive (as is similar footage from the CSN-CA feed) which obviously works in Stuart's favor. Anyway, back to your regularly scheduled programming.

It was a busy night in the NHL and a busy night for team trainers as three key players were forced from games and did not return. The New York Rangers trip out west took a turn for the worse on Tuesday. They were rocked 9-2 by the San Jose Sharks and they lost one of their best players in the process. Rick Nash, who missed four games with a concussion last season, left the game after taking an elbow to the head from Brad Stuart. The Rangers did not release an update on Nash’s status after the game, but expect some more information later in the day. Niklas Backstrom was hurt when he was crashed into by Predators forward Eric Nystrom. Nystrom was in a foot race with Keith Ballard and proceeded to lose his balance and fall hard into the Wild netminder. Backstrom’s right leg was driven into the post and he left the game with a lower-body injury. Minnesota head coach Mike Yeo said “he didn’t know the severity and Backstrom would be reevaluated Wednesday in Minnesota.” Backstrom was unavailable to the media last night, but was reportedly limping noticeably. Lastly, the 39-year-old Tim Thomas left with what the Panthers are calling a “slightly pulled groin.” Thomas appeared to injure himself on a long shot from Sean Couturier and then unsuccessfully reached over to stop the second shot from the right half-boards. Following the goal Thomas skated off of the ice and did not return. Jacob Markstrom played very well in relief, stopping all 25 shots he faced. Editors Note: Expect an update on all THREE of these players at some point today.

If you missed the Sharks game on Tuesday night, you may want to forget splurging on lottery tickets because this isn't your week. If your name is Tomas Hertl, you may want to double down on any bets you're placing. The young Czech had the game that most NHLers can only dream of, scoring four goals en route to his first career hat trick. The crazy part of all of this is that Hertl's offensive outburst didn't even account for half of the Sharks scoring, as they pulverized the visiting New York Rangers 9-2 at SAP Center.

"WE WANT TEN" One of the rarest chants in hockey graced the SAP Center tonight as the Sharks lit up Henrik Lundqvist and Martin Biron for nine goals, ultimately winning 9-2 in game that was not as close as the score suggests, if you believe it or not. After the first period, the story was about the shot domination by the Sharks. They led 15-7 on the shot clock and 2-1 on the scoreboard. The story was about the aggressive penalty kill by the Sharks that generated as many - or more - chances than the Rangers. The story was about the scoring by the defensemen; Vlasic - Vlasic! - and Boyle scored in the first, bringing the total of goals by the blueline to four on the season. They had 17 all of last season, so the increased production would be a storyline to watch. Pavelski - though still snakebit - was dominant, even setting up Vlasic on a short-handed goal to tie the game shortly after the Rangers scored on a 5-on-3. Then the rest of the game happened. The second period saw four goals scored, including three goals in 89 seconds. First up was Matt Nieto and his first NHL goal. That would have been the story of the game, a Long Beach native continuing the California hockey growth narrative. Nieto executed a beautiful pass through the skates of a Rangers player to Pavelski, who passed it to Wingels, who passed it to Nieto who was untouched in front of Lundqvist. It was a pretty goal, and it was an easy goal. Second goal of the period continued Tomas Hertl's three game point streak to begin his career. Andrew Desjardins collected the puck from the corner, then passed it to Hertl who had set up shop in front of Lundqvist. That goal chased King Henrik from the net, with backup Martin Biron taking his place. However, that didn't stop the Sharks' barrage of goals, with Logan Couture scoring a goal off a puck that bounced off the endboards right in front of the goalmouth just seconds later. Hertl started to change the narrative by potting his second of the night. In a moment emblematic of how the Sharks' night was going, Boyle's broken stick laying untouched on the ice generated a turnover, with Thornton picking up the puck and springing Hertl on a breakaway. Hertl easily shoots it in behind Biron. 6-1. Third period. The Rangers get another goal, on a great outlet pass by Brian Boyle from behind the net to Dorsett, but the result of the game was a foregone conclusion. But the story of the game was just about to be written. Tomas Hertl, after flirting with a hat trick against the Coyotes, connects on the powerplay to let the hats rain onto the ice. His famous perma-grin was as wide as ever as the Tank gave him a well-deserved standing ovation. The cameras cut to a shot of his mom and girlfriend crying in the stands. It was a great moment. But not as great as what happened three minutes later. Tomas Hertl's fourth goal of the game is a goal of the year contender, and is one of the rare hockey plays that made Sportscenter (not to be confused with Sportscentre). Justin Braun also scored to prompt the "WE WANT TEN" chants, and on any other night would have contributed to the first period narrative of defensemen continuing to produce. However, tonight belongs to Tomas Hertl, the 4th youngest player in NHL history to score 4 goals. To quote Tomas Hertl, "This is dream." [Corsi Report] - [Rangers Reaction] [Event Summary] - [PBP Log] - [TOI Log] - [Faceoff Report] Teenage Mutant Ninja Hertl can probably buy a car now. Hertl was the first 19 year old to score 4 goals since 1988. That's five years before he was born. Hertl is 19 overall in goals scored. That's if he was his own team. Hertl's mom was wearing the jersey he was given when he was drafted, which is adorable and signals that the Sharks shop really needs to start selling Hertl jerseys. It's obvious that the Sharks were dominant based on the score, but it's hard to put into words just HOW dominant they were - it looked like they were on a power play the entire game
