On Twitter at 10:50 pm – @ nyipointblank   Bob Nystrom reports on Calgary radio that Kyle Okposo called his father during the second period to tell him he’s all right. Okposo was crushed by Phaneuf as he was skating with the puck through the neutral zone. Reasonable speculation would be a possible concussion. If true, could be any degree of severity, but it’s a good sign that Okposo called home.  Comments.
