The Boston Bruins had a brief scare early in the third period of Game 2.

Bruins tough guy Shawn Thornton left the game briefly after he missed a check against Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban. As you’ll see in the video, Subban avoided the check and Thornton sped right through without hitting his intended target.

While Thornton left the ice after that play, he returned with just over 11 minutes to play in the period.
