It looked like Zach Parise wouldn't return after this nasty hit from Chicago's Brandon Bollig on Thursday night. But after a few tense minutes, Minnesota fans could sigh in relief.
Parise had to be helped off the ice by the Wild's training staff during the second period and he was taken down the tunnel to be examined. About two minutes after the hit, Parise returned and continued playing, finishing the night with no points in his 23:20 of ice time during Minnesota's 3-2 shootout loss.
Bollig was not issued a penalty for the hit.
