There was a scary moment in Boston on Tuesday night midway through the first period when Arizona Coyotes defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson's skate clipped Bruins forward David Backes in the face.

After dropping to his knees, Backes quickly collected himself and raced off the ice to the Bruins' dressing room.

Luckily, following some treatment during the first intermission, Backes returned for the second period.

The 34-year-old has recorded three goals and three assists in 26 games this season.
