The NHL is a tough league to play in, requiring players to put their bodies through hell every night. One of the toughest parts of the game is blocking shots, taking a frozen rubber puck to the body at 80 miles an hour.

Jets Defender Josh Morrissey felt the brunt of that last night during his game against the Canadiens, as he took a shot from Nick Suzuki to the face, leaving him bloody and requiring him to leave the game.

Luckily for the Jets, Morrissey would be alright, returning to the game later after getting a decent amount of work done in the locker room to fix up his injuries enough to continue the game.

Morrissey's Return Not Enough to Get Jets the Win

Unfortunately, though, for the Jets and their fans, Morrissey's return would not be enough for them to get the win over the Canadiens. Despite the Jets efforts in tying the game in the third period, the Canadiens were able to win on a powerplay goal in overtime.
