VANCOUVER -- Canucks GM Mike Gillis was given a chance to criticize officials Tuesday for not calling a penalty against Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk for a hit during Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final that fractured the vertebrae of Mason Raymond.
Boychuk and Raymond became tangled near the boards deep in the Bruins zone during the opening minute of the first period. Raymond was driven into the boards backside first by Boychuk and did not return to the game.
Raymond was diagnosed with a vertebrae compression fracture, the team announced Tuesday.
Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
