Pelech looked down. His arm was puffy, swollen and dark blue from the shoulder all the way down to his hand. Looking back, Pelech remembers feeling his arm go numb in the second period. But he simply figured the funny, tingly sensation came from a pinched nerve or a minor burner. Dr. Reg Peters, an emergency room physician, was working the game that night.
