Linesman Don Henderson did not sign up for this.
Maple Leafs’ forward Nikolai Kulemin hit Islanders’ captain into the boards in front of the New York bench. Tavares lost his balance and fell awkwardly into the boards… and right into Henderson’s crotch.
Tavares was shaken up on the play but stayed on the bench. He didn’t miss a shift.
Linesman Don Henderson? He never even left the ice.
