Video: Red Wings’ Jurco penalized for running Bruins’ Boychuk from behind

Apr 2, 2014, 9:53 PM EDT

There was a concerning moment for the Boston Bruins in the second period of Wednesday’s game against the Detroit Red Wings.

Bruins’ defenseman Johnny Boychuk was hit hard from behind into the glass by Red Wings’ forward Tomas Jurco with less than seven minutes remaining in the middle frame. Jurco, who has only 10 penalty minutes in 29 games for Detroit this season, was assessed a minor penalty on the play.

Boychuk, 30, remained in the game for the Bruins. The Boston blue liner had made a pass behind the net, with his back clearly turned to Jurco.

Jurco continued to follow through on his hit, driving Boychuk from behind in the boards.

    Unnecessary potentially dangerous hit.

    Lol, it was from the side and he was far enough away from the boards, clearly he was acme to protect himself as he put his and out and protected himself. It was only after he realized what happened did he sell it for three penalty call, Jurco barely pushed him. What a diving girl. Watching all the Bruins fans cry after the loss is sad. I thought Massholes had thicker skin. At least that’s what they always brag about.

      Who’s crying? The right call was made end of story… You seem to have some strong envy towards the Bruins success?
