Hes a big piece of what were going to do moving forward, new coach Bill Peters said before learning of the severity of the injury.Staal was hurt on what appeared to be an innocent play with 6:35 left in the third period. He was skating up the right boards inside the Sabres zone when he was checked into the boards by defenceman Josh Gorges. Staal immediately fell to the ice and lay on his side for a few seconds before play was stopped.A trainer attended to Staal, who eventually needed help to get up.
