Video: Brassard leaves game after big hit from Weaver

May 17, 2014, 1:53 PM EDT

New York Rangers forward Derick Brassard has been one of their top performers in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but his first game of the Eastern Conference Final got off to a rough start.

Early in the first period, Brassard took a big hit from Montreal Canadiens defenseman Mike Weaver and headed to the bench. He wasn’t on the bench for long as he headed to the locker room and hasn’t returned.

In Brassard’s stead, Dominic Moore has picked up two assists to help get the Rangers out to a 2-0 lead early.

    Close to being late. You can’t admire your passes like that.

    waaaaaaaaaaaaay late. the puck was long gone. no reason for that hit, and how it wasn’t interference is beyond me.
