Holding a 3-2 lead against the St. Louis Blues, Bruins’ defenceman Torey Krug engaged in a fierce battle with Blues forward David Perron that resembled a wrestling match more than a standard hockey possession.
Krug was evidently enraged as the puck turned up in the Blues’ end and he took off down the ice without his helmet, legally destroying forward St. Louis’ Robert Thomas with a thunderous hit.

Torey Krug: “I’m just glad I got a haircut a few days ago.” Krug said his wife was “probably” concerned with him skating without a helmet. “I don’t know. She’s really pregnant right now, so she was probably just worried about that.”
