Tonight's NHL lineup features a matchup between the New York Rangers and the Columbus Blue Jackets, two teams that find themselves at different points in the league standings but have grown quite familiar with each other due to their recent encounters.

In a notable moment during the second period, Vincent Trocheck of the Rangers collided with Johnny Gaudreau of the Blue Jackets at center ice, resulting in a significant impact between the two players.


The collision, though unintentional, led to Trocheck being initially handed a major penalty. However, upon review, officials rescinded the penalty against Trocheck, and the Rangers were awarded a power play, which they capitalized on by scoring.


Gaudreau was visibly shaken up by the collision and exited the game, sparking concern. Initial speculation suggested a head injury, but conversation during the broadcast leaned more towards a shoulder issue, a part of the body Gaudreau has had trouble with before.

Fans and teammates alike are hopeful that Gaudreau's injury isn't severe.

In a positive turn of events, Johnny Gaudreau made a comeback in the third period, much to the relief of his team and supporters.
