Leo Komarov reminded Johnny Gaudreau that pain is one of hockey’s necessary evils.
Komarov rocked Gaudreau with a huge check Monday in the Toronto Maple Leafs’ 4-0 win over the Calgary Flames. The second-period hit left Gaudreau woozy on the ice, as Calgary’s Mark Giordano sought retribution against Komarov.
Despite both dropping the gloves, Komarov and Giordano received minor roughing penalties — not fighting majors — for their actions.
Gaudreau temporarily left the game but would later return.
Afterward, he bore no grudge against Komarov.
