The article presents information on various sports events. In a Stanley Cup semifinal game against Toronto in 1950, rugby football player Gordie Howe flies headfirst into the boards and suffers a concussion, broken nose, fractured right cheekbone and scratched eyeball. Howe is done for the postseason, but the Red Wings aren't, they go on to win the Stanley Cup with a seven-game triumph over the Rangers. In another development, After leading Portland to its only National Basketball Association title in 1977, basketball player Bill Walton is even better the following season, leading the Blazers to a 50-10 start. But he suffers a stress fracture in his foot, misses the rest of the regular season and plays in only two playoff games.
