Sean Kuraly hit an Oiler so hard that the panel of glass popped out

Not often does the glass let loose from the stanchions!

Late in the second period of tonight’s Bruins - Oilers game, Sean Kuraly of the Boston Bruins barreled into the attacking zone on the forecheck.

Oilers defenseman (and former Bruin draft pick) Matt Benning turned his back to the play to face the puck and shovel it out.

Kuraly made him play with a huge hit, laying into Benning with a jolt that had enough force to pop the pain of glass clean out of the stanchions.

YIKES.

The hit was borderline questionable, as Kuraly definitely caught Benning square in the numbers. It wasn’t too different from a boarding call that went against Edmonton in the first period.

Benning wasn’t hurt, and the fans looked OK too.

Funnily enough, one of the guys responsible for the biggest glass-breaking hit in Bruins history, Milan Lucic, was on the other team tonight.
