Tampa Bay Lightning center Tyler Johnson left the game against the Boston Bruins at TD Garden on Sunday after getting hit in the face with a puck in the third period.

Johnson was checked into the boards before a clearing attempt by Bruins defenseman Kevan Miller struck him with 5:19 remaining. He was attended to by a trainer but skated off the ice on his own with a towel over his face.

Johnson has nine goals and 25 points in 49 games this season.

The Lightning defeated the Bruins 4-1 for their sixth straight win.
