The National Hockey League was skating all over the ice last night with two playoff games as the Philadelphia Flyers were edged out by one goal 4-3 against the New Jersey Devils as Ilya Kovalchuk scored a goal and got 2 assists and the St. Louis Blues were outskated by the LA Kings 4-2 to take a commanding 3-0 series lead as Drew Doughty scored a goal notched 2 assists.
As details began to surface in Junior Seau’s death, the San Diego County medical examiner ruled his untimely passing a suicide. Chief medical officer for San Joaquin County, Bennet Omalu, will assist in the autopsy of Seau as Omalu is credited with identifying CTE, which stands for Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy. CTE is a neurological disorder which occurs from repeated head trauma and can lead to erratic behavior and is associated with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Omalu’s involvement in Seau’s autopsy will help determine if Seau’s suicide could be related to the increasing number of concussions and football.
