Found May 22, 2013 on Diehardsport:
Boston Bruins forward Tyler Seguin was bringing the puck into the zone when he went to put a shot on net.  As he shot, New York Rangers forward Chris Kreider put his stick out to poke check, and Seguin’s follow through ended up riding all the way up Kreider’s stick and Kreider was hit in the face.  At the same time Rangers defenseman Steve Eminger was trying to impede Seguin and his stick ended up getting in Seguin’s face and hit him in the mouth.  Never have I seen two people get hit in the face with high sticks simultaneously, but that’s exactly what happened during the Bruins game three win last night.  Both players would end up being fine, but getting hit in the face with a stick is never fun.
