Video: Marc-Edouard Vlasic saved by his visor after taking Shea Weber shot to the face
It’s a scary night for players getting hit in the head with pucks.
After Brian Elliott was hit in the head by a Jason Spezza slapshot, it was Marc-Edouard Vlasic’s turn to narrowly avoid disaster.
In the third period of Sunday’s game against the Predators, Vlasic took a puck to the face. The end result could have been catastrophic had Vlasic not had a visor.

It’s nice to see that Vlasic was in a joking mood after the game:
Hockey Twitter breathed a collective sigh of relief after Vlasic got back up:
If Vlasic didn't wear a visor there he'd probably be dead. Not sure that's an exaggeration. Right between the eyes.— Chemmy (@felixpotvin) May 2, 2016
That visor just saved Vlasic's face from reconstructive surgery. Holy smokes.— Frank Seravalli (@frank_seravalli) May 2, 2016
