Mason Raymond has left TD Garden and is at a Boston hospital after taking an awkward hit into the boards just a handful of seconds into Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals. The Vancouver Canucks forward was tied up by Boston Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk as they chased the puck in the corner.
Tangled with each other, the two went into the corner and Boychuk turned Raymond back-first towards the boards. In an awkward, bent position, Raymond's back side hit the boards and he fell immediately to the ice. He stayed down for a while and eventually needed help to get to the bench. It didn't look good, but don't take out word for it.
Here's the video.
The Canucks are calling it an undisclosed injury, but they did confirm that he's off to the hospital. The injury seemed to shake Vancouver a little bit, as they lost a player before they could even have a chance to settle in on the bench for Game 6. Then again, everything about the first period looked shaky for the Canucks.
