NHL playoffs 2019: Bruins defenseman Torey Krug helped off ice after hard hit into boards

Bruins defenseman Torey Krug had to be helped off the ice Saturday after a hit by Toronto’s Jake Muzzin sent him flying into the boards.

Krug’s helmet flew off after Muzzin’s hit, and Krug then awkwardly hit the boards. He had some trouble getting to his feet after the impact, and was helped off the ice and headed for the locker room.

Krug was the Bruins’ fifth-leading scorer this season, with 53 points (six goals, 47 assists) in 64 games. He had an assist on a goal by Brad Marchand in the first period of Saturday’s game.

Boston, which trails Toronto 1-0 in the series, led 3-0 after two periods.
