Zach Parise takes big hit from Brandon Bollig, returns to game

An injury to Zach Parise is the last thing Minnesota needs. They received a bit of a scare on Thursday in Chicago.

Scary moment for the Minnesota Wild in the second period on Thursday when their best player, Zach Parise, was on the receiving end of this big hit from behind, courtesy of Chicago's Brandon Bollig.

Parise was clearly shaken up on the play and needed some assistance to get off the ice, which surely put a scare into the Minnesota organization and fanbase. He didn't really miss any time, however, as he was back on the ice just minutes later for a Minnesota power play.

In 61 games this season Parise has a team-leading 28 goals and is second on the team with 51 points, trailing only Jason Pominville.
