It's not even 30 seconds into Game 6 and the Vancouver Canucks are already down a man. Mason Raymond took an awkward hit in the corner while jockeying for a puck with Boston Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk.
Boychuk wrapped up his skates, spun Raymond around and decked him into the boards. His back side hit the boards hard and there was no forgiveness from the wall, which didn't even budge. He went down immediately in a heap and stayed down for quite some time before getting helped to the locker room.
It certainly didn't look good, and the scene wasn't helped by the embarrassing chants by Bruins fans at TD Garden. It was a "Let's go Bruins" chant that was loudest as Raymond was helped off the ice, but there was something else inaudible while the Canuck was still down. We'll just say it sounded derisive. Kinda weak.
Raymond is out and the Canucks are down to 11 forwards. We'll see what kind of impact it has on the rest of the game.
