Boston Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid is one of the hardest hitters on the team, and Ottawa Senators forward Viktor Stalberg found out the hard way Thursday night at TD Garden.
McQuaid demolished Stalberg along the boards in the third period with a thunderous hit that left the Sens winger shaken up.
Stalberg laid on the ice for a bit before exiting and heading down the tunnel toward Ottawa’s locker room.
McQuaid was not penalized on the play and no fight ensued as a result.
