Krys Barch made his Florida Panthers debut on Thursday night, and he didn’t take long to make his presence known.
Early in the first period, Barch zeroed in on Bruins forward Daniel Paille and delivered a hit in the corner. Barch had to answer quickly for the hit, both in terms of a fight with Shawn Thornton and a 2-minute minor for charging.
The initital hit sent Paille to the locker room and he was eventually ruled out for the evening. NESN’s Andy Brickley used the Amica Coverage Cam to break down the hit and the reason was pretty clear, as replays show Barch’s shoulder appeared to make contact with Paille’s head.
