In case you missed it last night, late in the first period of Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final, St. Louis Blues forward Oscar Sundqvist absolutely BURIED Boston Bruins forward Matt Grzelcyk from behind, running Grzelcyk's head directly into the end glass.

Here’s the hit in question:

It was an ugly hit that earned Sundqvist just a two minute minor for hitting from behind. Grzelcyk left the game and did not return and following last night’s overtime loss, Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy confirmed that Grzelcyk had been taken to the hospital for testing. 

Check it out:

You have to feel for Grzelcyk, he’s been such a good player for the Bruins down the stretch and into the playoffs. The 25 year old Charleston, MA native has seven points in 19 playoff games, but more than that he’s been logging big minutes on a regular basis. He’s strong defensively, can skate well and is a great defensive zone passer. If he’s out for any significant length of time, he’ll be sorely missed.
