BOSTON — As far as awkward collisions go, the one that knocked Vancouver forward Mason Raymond out of tonight’s Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final has to be near the top of the charts.
The winger spun around and went into the corner with his back to the glass and Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk sort of riding his front.
Here’s a look at it:
After the Bruins’ 5-2 win that forced Wednesday night’s Game 7, Boychuk was clueless as to what had happened.
“I don’t even know what happened to him,” said the defenseman. “I think [it was just awkward].”
Raymond was taken to the hospital. Canucks coach Alain Vigneault offered no update on the player after the game.
