Boston Bruins defenseman Charlie McAvoy isn’t afraid to punish his opponents, and he proved that in the second period of Game 5 of his team’s first-round Stanley Cup playoff series against the Ottawa Senators.
The rookie blueliner drilled Senators forward Viktor Stalberg with a massive hit along the boards.
It was part of a very entertaining period, highlighted by the Bruins scoring two goals to go into the third period tied 2-2. Boston went on to win 3-2 in double overtime.
Check out McAvoy’s hit from Friday night in the video above.
