Minutes into the first period, the puck coming from teammate Brett Pesce deflected off Williams' face and into the net. Williams fell to the ice for a moment and managed to get back on his feet and skate into the locker room. He returned to the game and scored a goal this time with his hockey stick, snapping a 3-3 tie.
The Hurricane's tweeted that "@JustinWilliams leads by example."
"Thank God it was Pesce. If it was anyone else, I probably would have broken my jaw," Williams said jokingly.
