Kirill Kapustin crosscheck on Blake Pietila

One more video today... Check out this cross check by Russia's forward Kirill Kapustin on USA forward Blake Pietila. Kapustin was given a two minute minor and a 10 minute misconduct, it should have been a five minute major and a game misconduct.These are the dangerous hits that hockey is trying to remove from the game of hockey.

I got to admit that I had to scratch my head when one of the announcers (whose name escapes me) said, "It didn't look like he got him all that hard." Which is absolutely false you can hear Pietila hitting the board with a pretty good clunk.
