8 Comments

Boston Bruins forward Simon Gagne tried to guide Habs’ defenseman Tom Gilbert into the end boards with a bear hug, but Gilbert went into the boards heavily and has left the game.

Gagne received a minor penalty for boarding on the play.

The hit was similar to Nathan MacKinnon’s on Luke Schenn. MacKinnon did not receive supplemental discipline on the play as the Department of Player Safety said there was no push on the play.
