Charlie McAvoy exited Monday night's Game 5 vs. the Tampa Bay Lightning after taking a nasty hit from Cedric Paquette.

During the third period, the Boston Bruins defenseman was hit hard from behind into the boards by Paquette while chasing the puck in the corner.

No penalty was called on the play.

Fortunately, Bruins fans were able to breathe a sigh of relief later on in the game as McAvoy returned to the ice.
