Midway through the second period of the 3-0 win for the Canadiens, McDonagh played the puck behind the net and was then pummeled face first into the boards by a forechecking Pacioretty:
McDonagh would leave the game and not return, while Pacioretty was penalized on the play for boarding.
Rangers coach John Tortorella was not happy after the game, opening his press conference following the loss with this:
"Can I ask the first question? How high did Pacioretty jump on his hit? Over/under?"
When a reporter answers with a guess of six inches, Tortorella curtly responds, "You're wrong."
