One of those shots ran into Charlie McAvoy; more specifically, it ran into the inside of his left knee:
As you can see from the clip above, McAvoy’s block eventually led to a Noel Acciari goal, but it also led to a whole lot of discomfort for McAvoy.
McAvoy skated to the bench doubled over in pain, remained doubled over on the bench, then headed down the tunnel after the empty-net goal.
BAD NEWS BEARS. Bruins fans held their breath, fearing that a big win was about to have a pall cast over it.
Instead, the news was good:
Per Bruce Cassidy, Charlie McAvoy is “fine” after blocking a shot late in the third. #NHLBruins— Boston Bruins (@NHLBruins) June 2, 2019
HOORAY! Now we don’t have to cut out our own knees to donate to McAvoy.
It’s worth noting that McAvoy was throwing himself in shooting lanes with the Bruins up 4 goals in the last couple minutes of the game.
TEAM PLAYER, THAT CHARLIE.
