As head coach Lindy Ruff told beat reporter Amanda Stein after the game, he was told that the puck hit Nico Hischier's shield and the shield pushed hard into the forward's face.

Other than that he did not provide an update on Hischier. It thus remains to be seen whether he will be sidelined for a while or whether he will be able to play again right away.
