shea weber john tavares nose injury

John Tavares said it was a bang-bang play when Shea Weber fell on top of him, causing his nose to be smashed into the ice. 

Tavares said his nose was gushing and that forced him to go through concussion protocol. Tavares briefly went to the locker room, but reappeared a short while later. Afterwards he said he felt good and the damage wasn't too much.
