Nashville Predators winger James Neal only managed to score once during his last 10 games of the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs, but there was apparently a good reason for it.

According to the team, Neal broke his hand during Game 1 of the conference finals against the Anaheim Ducks, but managed to play through the pain and even scored the game-winning goal in overtime of that very same contest.

Neal would go on to play in the Predators' final 11 games, finishing the postseason with six goals and three assists.
