Definitly a penalty, maybe the game but can't see a fine or suspension for that hit considering how the player left himself so vulnerable and it wasn't a hard hit

What total and absolute crap.

 

Why the hell would you ever turn your back on a monster in that moment?

 

Oh, but I'm not surprised. Will probably be the 42nd worst hit of the year, but the only one in the top 50 to get a suspension. Typical.

I'm not even being a homer when I say this.  But to ME  5 mins and a game is acceptable punishment.  A suspension is absolute garbage.  No way that's a suspension.

during the broadcast they talked about another player who did something similar but only 3 minutes or something anyone else remember what they had said about it?

 

Anyways I agree with the punishment all those goals going in Gudbranson probably kicking himself for what cost the team. If I was TG he'd be a healthy scratch for a few games. Cost the team big tonight.

Scratching probably our best defencemen so far this season is stupid.

The only bit of motion he makes is to make a pass otherwise his back is turned pretty much the entire time. I am not sure if this is a suspendable hit but it was deserving of 5 and a game. Gudbranson could see his numbers the whole way through.

Toews, I guess I have to watch it again then. 

It was from behind, on the numbers, I agree, but he brought it upon himself.

 

Lots of ways to not get creamed there.

 

He's a hockey player skating with his back to the ice, close to the boards.

Had it coming.
