Horrific incident for Canadiens’ Danault ‘takes air out of’ game vs. Bruins

MONTREAL — What do you do when the man with the NHL’s hardest shot winds up for a one-timer and you’re standing helplessly in its path, just 10 feet away? You brace yourself and hope for the best.

That’s what Montreal Canadiens forward Phillip Danault did with just 1:37 remaining in the second period of what turned out to be a 4-3 shootout loss to the Boston Bruins on Saturday. Unfortunately, he got the worst.

Bruins forward Jake DeBrusk, who scored on a breakaway 2:55 into the second frame, crossed the Montreal blue line at full speed near the end of the period, dropped the puck to Zdeno Chara, and the 6-foot-9, 255-pound behemoth ripped a rising shot that caught Danault right in the head.
