Domi Almost Loses Eye

Domi’s eyelid glued back on

It wasn’t intentional but Leafs’ winger Tie Domi took one for the team last night and it almost cost him an eye.
Domi was clipped by a Mike Komisarek high stick in the third period, and the blade of the Canadiens’ stick cut him on the left eye lid. The lid had to be glued back together. The Leafs scored twice during Komisarek’s double minor for high sticking to clinch the game.
“It was cut quite a bit but you can’t put stitches in there. I saw the blood in my eye. I was worried. I’ve been around a few ugly ones,” he said.
