It seems that Jensen was knocked out as a result of hitting the boards head first. Medics can be seen rushing onto the ice to assess the situation, Jensen was removed from the ice on a stretcher. Officials decided to end the period early, although they added a minute and thirty-one seconds to the second period so that no time was lost.
