With just under 20 seconds to go in the Leafs' 3-2 comeback win over the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night, Toronto Maple Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf came up favouring his left knee after an awkward fall in Toronto's zone. 
On a night when one of their top snipers busted out of a scoring slump, the Toronto Maple Leafs had a scare involving their captain.

With just under 20 seconds to go in the Leafs' 3-2 comeback win over the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night, Dion Phaneuf came up favouring his left knee after an awkward fall in Toronto's zone. 

He tried to cut off Jets forward Olli Jokinen's path to the net, and in the process appeared to trip and fall. He was slow to get up and looked to be in pain.

There was no immediate word on the status of the defenceman, but he was able to finish the game and skate off under his own power.
