Patrik Elias seems fine after taking a big hit from Matt Greene, but a 2-on-1 rush almost turned out ugly for the Devils. Elias dished the puck off in front of the net on the rush, and a solid second or two after he let go of the puck Green buried him with a late hit. Elias lost his balanced and tumbled into the boards. He was slow to get up.
No penalty was called on the play and the Prudential Center crowd certainly didn’t seem happy about that. Then again, Elias didn’t seem to miss a shift.
