Nice hard hit. Really hard. Komisarek jumps in, and... well, aside from the really bizarre leg takedown and a punch after the fact... I don't know what else really happened. Win to the FINALLY out of the playoffs Leaf, and a 3.
New rule in NHL...if you clobber a guy with a bodycheck shoulder to shoulder crushing him into the boards one must fight X player from other team, what happened to the days when a good hard, clean check was applauded by both teams??? First Bradley clobbers that Ottawa guy, Smith jumps in and now Komisarek does the same with Chimera. I don't disrespect either player for jumping in to protect their teammate but I will truly respect the team that answers a big check with 2 of their own and we can get back to some hard hitting hockey!
This hit bothers me more than the other 2 questionable ones tonight. Holmstrom would've hit Smith in the shoulder had Carle not hit him and Eberle is a small guy What was Torres gonna do, not hit him? Were playing hockey, please be aware of what's coming your way. And as for this hit You can't see behind you I consider this an "unsuspecting player." Not a guy with his head down
