The Wild lost their leading goal scorer, Eric Staal on Saturday during their Game 5 playoff matchup with St. Louis.

After Staal came charging towards the net, he got crossed up by Blues defenseman Carl Gunnarsson and then went headfirst into the boards.

Staal was down on the ice for about five minutes.

He somehow was able to get up and skate off on his own power, but he wasn't moving his arms or much of his upper-body.

The Wild said Staal left the arena and went to Regions Hospital for further observation.
