The Boston Bruins briefly ran with five defensemen Saturday night.

In the second period of Game 1 between the B’s and New York Islanders in their second-round series, Matt Grzelcyk fired a pass from behind the net. Leo Komarov came in and laid a hit on the B’s defenseman, who was slow to get up.

Grzelcyk moved slowly to the bench while play continued, and got looked at by team trainer Don DelNegro on the bench. After a few moments, Grzelcyk went down the tunnel.

Grzelcyk returned after a few minutes in the dressing room, and it appears the Bruins dodged a bullet.
