As you can see, the check happened with less than a minute left in the first period of Wednesday’s game, so we’ll see if Gorges suffers any ill effects from the hit.

If so, young players might want to keep an eye on Brown, who broke Tye McGinn’s orbital bone in a fight.

The Habs are already without Raphael Diaz (concussion), so it could be a costly couple games if this is a serious situation.
