In a crucial moment during the Boston Bruins convincing 3-0 victory against the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday night, Jakub Lauko, a winger for the Bruins, made a swift exit from the ice at the 10:46 mark of the third period.

Lauko faced a heart-stopping incident during the game, with the Bruins holding a 3-0 lead.
He was accidentally struck in the eye area by the skate of Chicago Blackhawks forward Jason Dickinson. Lauko reacted immediately, heading for the bench and then making his way down the tunnel.
Boston Bruins head coach Jim Montgomery, speaking to Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe via Twitter, reassured everyone that Lauko's eye was okay after the unsettling incident.
ESPN's rinkside reporter, Ray Ferraro, suggested that the skate didn't make direct contact with the eye but landed just above it. As the third period unfolded, there were no further updates from ESPN or the Boston Bruins.
At the time of his injury, Jakub Lauko had played for 9 minutes and 13 seconds, managing two shots and one hit.
The 23-year-old winger, drafted by the Bruins in the third round (77th overall) of the 2018 NHL Entry Draft, is yet to record any points in the six games he's played this season.
The Bruins' goals in the game were contributed by Pavel Zacha (1), Matt Poitras (3), and Trent Frederic (2), with goalie Jeremy Swayman securing a 23-save shutout in a winning performance.
