Video: Red Wings’ Jurco penalized for running Bruins’ Boychuk from behind


There was a concerning moment for the Boston Bruins in the second period of Wednesday’s game against the Detroit Red Wings.

Bruins’ defenseman Johnny Boychuk was hit hard from behind into the glass by Red Wings’ forward Tomas Jurco with less than seven minutes remaining in the middle frame. Jurco, who has only 10 penalty minutes in 29 games for Detroit this season, was assessed a minor penalty on the play.

Boychuk, 30, remained in the game for the Bruins. The Boston blue liner had made a pass behind the net, with his back clearly turned to Jurco.

Jurco continued to follow through on his hit, driving Boychuk from behind in the boards.

Boston looked to have taken a 1-0 lead against Detroit on Wednesday night when Torey Krug converted on the B’s first power play of the game — but no.

Zdeno Chara was called for interfering with Wings goalie Jimmy Howard, a decision that, upon further review, was pretty questionable:

A few reactions from Twitter:

Any controversy surrounding the goal was quickly wiped out, though, as Johnny Boychuk scored moments later to give (or, re-give) Boston the lead:
