Scary moment for the Montreal Canadiens in their game at the Winnipeg Jets on Sunday: Michael Cammalleri(notes) left late in the first period with what looked like a significant leg injury -- from what looked like a slice to his around his knee via teammate Yannick Weber's(notes) skate.

And suddenly, visions of Kevin Bieksa's various skate-related injuries came gushing to mind.

Good news from the Habs: Cammalleri's "lower body" injury is "nothing serious." (UPDATE: TSN is reporting a laceration that could cost him two weeks.)

As was mentioned on the video, MTS Centre is an arena in which a player on the visiting bench needs to leave for the trainer's room via the ice.

Things happen, it's loud and live hockey has a lot of things to distract the linesmen. That said, if a player in the KHL was bleeding from his limp leg and officials ignored the shouts from the bench to stop play, what would the reaction from the hockey world have been upon seeing the video?
