Chicago Blackhawks forward Alex DeBrincat was assessed a five-minute major for boarding Edmonton Oilers defenseman Ethan Bear on Friday night.

Bear, one of Edmonton's top blue-liners, was forced to leave the game temporarily, but he eventually returned.

The Oilers' power play, which was the league's best during the regular season, was unable to capitalize on the opportunity.
