Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller suffered a concussion after a "gutless" hit by Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic, CBS Sports.com reports.
Miller came out of the goalie crease to play the puck, and by NHL rules was legal to be checked. However, Miller and his coach, Lindy Ruff, felt the hit was over the line, ESPN reports.
"I thought it was a major," Ruff said Saturday. "I thought if it was open season on goalies then let's get at it."
"(Lucic has) 50 pounds on me and he runs me like that? It's unbelievable," Miller said. "Everyone in this city sees him as a big tough solid player. I respected him for how hard he played. That was gutless."
