First off, these are hits that need to be removed from the game of hockey. New York Rangers forward Benoit Pouliot saw numbers and shouldn't have hit Montreal Canadiens defenseman Alexei Emelin.
All right, but the acting job to sell the penalty was ridiculous, that was worthy of a unsportsmanlike penalty itself. And of course the Canadiens fans wanted a five-minute major on Pouliot. Thoughts?
Brutal blindside hit by Benoit Pouliot on Alexei Emelin who headed to the dressing room. He should have been tossed. #GoHabsGo #NYRangers

Canadiens fans don't cheer for their team... They cheer for the ref.ReplyDelete
It was the right call.Emelin should get an oscar for his perfofmance.ReplyDelete
Couldn't agree with you moreDelete
I was going to say that I agree Starfighter673. Emelin sold it hard and the Habs milked it as well.Delete
This is the kind of hit that is clearly an attempt to injure. I'm a lifelong Ranger fan and I believe that Pouliot should have been tossed from the game and gotten a suspension as well. There is no room in sports for this kind of behavior. These pros sacrifice their bodies each game and don't need dirty hits added to the game.ReplyDelete
It wasn't a good hit, but it's not worthy of a suspension... Emelin sold it hard.ReplyDelete
Yeah the hit was bad and was ok when the hab went to his knees but the fall to his face and death quivers were a little over the top.ReplyDelete
