During the Montreal Canadiens' heartbreaking loss to the Florida Panthers last night, there was an absolutely unfortunate and unusual sequence that occurred, as defenseman Joel Edmundson accidentally injured a linesman, and the injury looked serious.

The scene unfolded particularly quickly, as a skirmish between Joel Edmundson came to the aid of teammate Kirby Dach, hitting Radko Gudas from behind with a good double-check.

Then defenseman Marc Staal stepped in and threw Edmundson to the ice, injuring the official in question in the process, knocking him down dangerously.

The referee appeared to have suffered a knee injury and was writhing in pain. The kind of sequence you don't like to see, especially after a heated moment.


Here is the footage in question:
