from Bruce Arthur of the Toronto Star,
After Dale Weise was hit in the head by New York Rangers defenceman John Moore he rolled right back up and he tried to turn and he nearly fell down. His eyes were glassy and his hair was wild, because his helmet had come off. P.K. Subban grabbed him to hold him up, like a trainer hugging his boxer after throwing in the towel to end a fight. Tomas Plekanec helped Weise onto the bench; a trainer held Weise by the elbow on the way to the dressing room. It was the third period.
And Weise came back. The Montreal Canadiens had a two-goal lead in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference final, and Weise played 1:44 the rest of the way, including most of the final minute. He was ruled out for Game 6 on Thursday morning. The Canadiens denied he had a concussion.
From Montreal head coach Michel Therrien’s press conference before Game 6 of the Eastern Conference final:
Q: Is there any regret about having Dale come back given that the symptoms, obviously, came on after the game?
Therrien: You’re presuming it’s a head injury.
Q: Am I not correct?
Therrien: You’re not correct.
