Evander Kane hospitalized after scary fall

The Buffalo Sabres are suffering from some brutal injury luck early in the season.
Jack Eichel is already slated to miss at least a month, and now the Sabres have to be concerned about the health of Evander Kane thanks to a nasty, unlucky fall against the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday.
