Zach Werenskis intense postgame photo sums up playoff hockey

All eyes are on the eye of Zach Werenski.

The 19-year-old Blue Jackets defenseman took a puck to the face, which left him looking like this following Game 3 of the series with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Werenski was forced out of the game in the second period but returned in the third with a shield on his face and quite a nasty shiner.

While Werenski exhibited extreme toughness playing through the rest of regulation, he was unable to continue into overtime of the intense game between Columbus and Pittsburgh.

His effort earned praise from his fellow goal-scoring teammate.
