TAMPA, Fla. -- Tampa Bay Lightning right-winger Martin St. Louis has no timetable for returning from what he called a "scary" injury near his left eye. St. Louis is sidelined by facial and nasal fractures sustained last Thursday morning when he was struck in the face by a shot taken in practice by teammate Dominic Moore. St. Louis talked about the incident for the first time between the first and second periods of Tampa Bays Monday night game against New Jersey. "Ive been hit in the face before ... When that one hit me, I knew I was in trouble," St. Louis said. "I couldnt see out of my left eye, how the blood rushed through the eye. Panic set in. I was very overwhelmed with the possibilities, you know." St. Louis is undergoing treatment to improve the vision in the eye, which has shown good improvement since last week. "I cant see as good as the other eye right now, but theres different factors why," St. Louis said. "The trauma the eye got and the treatment Im getting on the eye right now is the reason why. Its looking good right now." The injury ended St. Louis consecutive games streak at 499 games. He also required stitches both above and below the eye. "Its tough because I cant do anything (physical) right now, nothing," said St. Louis, who plans to use a visor in future games. St. Louis, who hadnt missed a game since Nov. 15, 2005, at Washington was hit near his left eye when Moore shot wide of the net. He was bleeding profusely when he left the ice at Madison Square Garden and was assisted to the dressing room by a trainer. St. Louis left the arena in an ambulance. St. Louis has nine goals and 22 points in 27 games. cheap nfl jerseys . The solutions? Not so much.

After homering for the second straight night and driving in the winning runs with a 12th-inning single, Colabello has a league-leading 26 RBIs, tying the franchise record for games before the end of April set by Kirby Puckett in 1994. The Twins have six games left this month. "RBIs are a product of opportunity, and Im thankful to this coaching staff for believing in me enough to put me in the middle of this order, and to the guys in front of me for getting on base," said Colabello, whos also set a club record for RBIs in the first 20 games, passing Mickey Vernon (1955) and Brant Alyea (1970). "My job is to knock them in, and it just so happens this month theres quite a few of them." Colabellos game-winning hit came off Josh Lueke (0-1) after hits by Joe Mauer and Trevor Plouffe. Casey Fien (1-0) got the win and Glen Perkins pitched the 12th inning for his fourth save. Colabello drove in Minnesotas first two runs with a fourth-inning home run off Rays starter Jake Odorizzi, his third homer of the season. "Its quite an honour when you start getting mixed in with names like that," Colabello said. "You start to realize how special this game is, how special the opportunity to be here is. Its certainly something Ill remember for a long time." Colabello drovee in 17 runs in 55 games for the Twins last season, his first in the major leagues.dddddddddddd "Thats a pretty special thing for a guy who, as he put it, played in beer leagues a couple years ago," said Twins manager Ron Gardenhire.

Matt Joyce drove in the Rays first two runs with a ground ball in the first and a sacrifice fly in the third off Twins starter Mike Pelfrey. Pelfrey gave up six hits, three walks and three earned runs in five innings. Odorizzi pitched 3 1-3 innings, giving up four runs on five hits and striking out five, all consecutively.
