Zdeno Chara Hits Max PaciorettyMontreal’s Max Pacioretty got a severe concussion and a broken neck. Boston’s Zdeno Chara got nothing.

Whether you think six games is too few considering Stuart will be gone six weeks is open to debate, but you have to give the NHL credit for at least recognizing  the growing concern and danger surrounding head hits and attempting to abate them. Whether that’s working or not is a different matter.

Hand gestures and hits from behind worth equal suspensions

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, Injuries, NHL,

Jason PominvilleColin Campbell was busy on Tuesday, handing out a number of suspensions. Among the hit list was James Wisniewski of the Islanders for his obscene gesture towards Sean Avery, as well as Niklas Hjalmarsson on Chicago for his blind hit from behind against Jason Pominville, which resulted in Pominville's being carried off the ice on a stretcher. Both Wisniewski and Hjalmarsson were suspended for a pair of games for their individual and fundamentally different rule infractions.
