Hits From Behind

Posted 8:07 PM ET | Comments 0
Last night I watched the beat down the 'Canes put on the Leafs. During the game the Vs. spent a period of time talking about Erik Cole and his broken neck. Now, as much as his injury was unfortunate, I have seen a sad trend that is occuring in the league. The trend that I have witnessed time and time again is the players turning their back to the oncoming player, who with his momentum comes crashing into the player. The player then crushed head first into the boards drawing a penalty. Not only has he put his team on the power play, he might as well could've injured himself during the play. Case in point the Cole hit. Watch it for yourself. It may be borderline but he did turn his back to the checker.

Just my opinion...
