ORIGINAL HISTORY: A terrifying scene fell on the ice of TD's garden at the end of the first period of the Boston Bruins' tilt with the New York Rangers on Saturday.

With just under 90 to play in the opening period, Rangers forward Filip Chytil skated right wing with speed. David Pastrnak tried to get a piece of the record in a chase check, but was unsuccessful. While Chytil was on his way to the net, Charlie McAvoy slid and crouched, throwing a body check on the Ranger.

Chytil scored, went flying due to the check and crashed right into Tuukka Rask. The head of the Bruins goalkeeper went up and hit the top post before the net came off and his mask flew out. Rask ended up on his back and let himself fall for a few moments, in the end he was examined by the team's medical staff before being helped out of the ice and through the tunnel.

Here is a look at the work.

The goal counted and Jaroslav Halak took over the Rask network.
