Another scary incident on Tuesday night, following Minnesota’s Mikko Koivu exiting tonight’s game in Columbus and being sent to hospital — in Boston, B’s d-man Adam McQuaid appeared to be injured on a hitfrom Caps energy guy Zach Sill.

McQuaid has yet to return from the incident and, as the video shows, needed help just leaving the playing surface.

The fans in Boston booed vociferously upon learning there was no penalty on the play, and responses on social media mirrored those at TD Garden. Twitter was filled with complaints about Sill’s hit, and calls for the NHL’s Department of Player Safety to review.

We’ll keep tabs on McQuaid’s condition. The Bruins have yet to update his status, but a return seems doubtful.
