In the recent matchup between the Boston Bruins and the Pittsburgh Penguins, Brad Marchand narrowly escaped a harrowing skate blade incident, averting potential danger.

This season has seen increased attention on skate blade injuries, and fortunately, the NHL narrowly dodged one last night. In the Boston Bruins' match against the Pittsburgh Penguins, Brad Marchand and Michael Bunting collided in open ice. Marchand accidentally tripped Bunting, causing his skate to fly upward. It was a close call, highlighting the potential for a truly frightening incident.

This is insane. I'm rattled man.

No idea what EK is doing but Marchand shorty 4-1

Fortunately, neither player was harmed by the skate blade, and they both emerged unscathed from the incident. However, this near-miss serves as a reminder of the earlier calls this season for players to wear neck guards. It prompts the suggestion that the NHL should seriously consider implementing them during the upcoming offseason.
