Richard Panik took one for the team on Sunday, and got an assist to show for it.
In the second period of the Blackhawks' 3-2 loss to the Boston Bruins at United Center, Panik was knocked into the opposing goal and he hit on the shoulder with a shot from teammate Artemi Panarin. With Panik still in the goal, Panarin picked up the rebound and put the puck past Panarin and into the net.
Panik was driving to the net and ended up in the net after being checked by Bruins defenseman Brandon Carlo. Panarin picked up the puck off the end boards and hit Panik with his initial shot before cutting Boston's lead to 2-1.
It was the 21st assist of the season for Panik, and probably the most painful helper of his career. Fortunately, no Blackhawks were injured in the making of the play as Panik remained in the game.
