William Carrier had quite the first period during Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Bruins.

With about five minutes to go in the first period, Carrier finished a high-check, around the head area, of David Backes coming from the blind side. To be clear, Carrier hits Backes in a parallel fashion, but it doesn't look good. Backes didn't return to the game. Carrier served a minor for a 'Rule 48 infraction', then later fought Adam McQuaid. A suspension could be coming. All that in just 83 seconds of playing time. Stay tuned.
