Packie Dillon, of the Stars, was so seriously hurt on Tuesday, that he had to be taken home in a carriage.

Dillon had a tough season. To add insult to injury (literally), Dillon was hurt in the game against his old teammates on the Reds.
And, yes, I'm really going to get to the Browns/Philadelphia game in Ludlow on September 22 but I want to build up a bit of dramatic tension first.
