Close enough to be called as a 'head shot'...
Good on Joensuu to react but did nothing about it , just held on.
Joensuu spoiled the whole purpose of dropping 'em in this situation ,
should have left it for someone else.
Give it a draw and a 2.
horrible hit, definitely a suspension coming. too bad it happened, i also believe that callahan isn't the type to do such a thing intentionally, but regardless... and a preemptive for the hulks that will inevitably say, "its old time hockey you pusssies," i will say, "give me the old time hits when the players go back to the old time equipment." would be hard to say a fight even happened, joensuu did the right thing but neither guy could get an arm free. draw and... a 1.
Callahan does go a little dirty with the elbow, I was a bit surprised as I'm a Rangers fan and he usually doesn't do stuff like this, but at the same time you don't have much time to react so I'm sure it wasn't intentional by any means. The bout was a win for Callahan as he was the only one who landed a punch throughout the fight.
Arms raised after the contact... Nielsen came in low and with his head down. Callahan shouldn't get any suspension. Unfortunate that Nielsen got hurt. Looks like he'll be fine. Joensuu justified in going after Callahan but should at least tried to throw a couple punches. Draw
