Isles' Boychuk breaks mask of Sens goalie Hammond with slap shot
Johnny Boychuk nearly decapitated the Hamburglar.
Ottawa Senators goalie Andrew Hammond took a slap shot to the face courtesy of the New York Islanders defenseman. Hammond’s forehead made the save at 9:05 in the second period but not without a major dose of pain.
It appeared Hammond was trying to glove the shot, but wasn't able to catch up to it in time. Thankfully, his mask took the brunt of the impact and saved him from a potentially scary situation.
While Hammond's mask stood up to the rocket of a shot, the puck wasn't as lucky.
