Sportsnet's Kyle Bukauskas reported between the second and third period that Petry has a subconjunctival hemorrhage, which is essentially just broken blood vessels that appear on the whites of your eyes and can be caused by a number of fairly benign factors — including side effects from certain pain and anti inflammatory medications.

Petry's wife Julie chimed in on the situation via Instagram as well:
