Twitter is abuzz with debate about whether or not the check was dirty - not to mention how late it was - but either way, Dustin Brown absolutely leveled Henrik Sedin tonight.

Naturally, the Vancouver Canucks reacted with anger toward the Los Angeles Kings’ captain, yet it was Henrik’s reaction that was the most surprising. Just moments after needing help off the ice after that colossal blow, Henrik returned to the Canucks bench. He played around the midway point of the second period, yet it remains to be seen if his long-term outlook will be as positive.

In a strange twist, both Sedin twins could very well need some time in “The Quiet Room.”
