Everyone at TD Garden on Saturday night got a reminder of the danger present within every game of hockey.

During first period action between the Ottawa Senators and Boston Bruins, Senators forward Scott Sabourin hit Bruins forward David Backes.

Unable to brace himself as he fell, his face hammered the ice.

According to Greg Millen of Hockey Night in Canada , Sabourin is responsive and has movement in his extremities.
