Chara’s Hit On Pacioretty

Montreal Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty laid motionless on the ice for several minutes before being taken off the ice on a stretcher after taking a hit from Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara and being driven into the corner of the glass that separates the two benches.

The Canadiens announced just after the start of the third period that Pacioretty was conscious and able to move his arms and legs, but was being taken to a hospital for further tests.

Chara was given a five-minute major for interference — Pacioretty had gotten rid of the puck long before the hit — and also a game misconduct with 16 seconds to play in the second period of a game the Canadiens were leading 4-0.”

This very easily could have happened to Tyler Ennis tonight as he was hit similar into the boards in Pittsburgh.
