Daniel Paille to see specialist after taking puck to face
|11.07.11 at 10:35 pm ET|
While the Bruins had plenty of fun in their 6-2 victory over the Islanders, they also had a very scary moment in the third period when a slap shot from New York defenseman Steve Staios hit Daniel Paille in the face, leaving a pool of blood and ending the forward’s night.
After the game, Claude Julien offered little update on Paille.
“He’s going to be seen by a specialist tonight,” Julien said. Obviously a puck hit him in the face, and in the nose area. We’ll probably know more tomorrow, once he’s seen by a specialist.”
Upon getting hit with the puck, Paille remained down on the ice by the blue line and was tended to by trainer Don DelNegro. He left the ice under his own power, but left a puddle of blood where he landed. Stick-tap to twitter follower tkeays for tweeting a picture of Paille’s bloodied helmet our way. It isn’t pretty.
