(CBS) Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final wasn't all smiles for those in attendance at the United Center.

Chicago radio personality Steve Dahl reports his physician, Dr. Patricia Higgins, was hit in the face by a stray puck in the third period during the Hawks triple-overtime win.

She had surgery on Thursday afternoon. She is now resting at home and is expected to make a full recovery.

Get this: She didn't even get the puck. The fans in the row in front of her took it home.
