Devils LW Parise leaves in 2nd period after hit
Parise already had scored a hat trick Friday night before he was hit simultaneously by forwards Brooks Laich and Matt Hendricks near the boards at the 9:40 mark of the second. Play was stopped while Parise was checked and stayed down on the ice for a bit.
Eventually, he was helped off and taken toward the locker room. He returned to the bench in the third period, and entered during a Devils power play with about six minutes left in the game.
Parise's three goals Friday give him a team-leading 27 this season.
