Well it pretty much looks like a puck to the face in thr regular season. Kind of what playoff hockey looks like. Sure there is a little more intensity, but at the end of the day you have to score more goals than the other team.
Cal Clutterbuck, great sports name, of the Islanders took a puck right to the face and bled all over the ice. Playoffs or not it's one of the main reasons to watch hockey.
