Cheap shot indeed and suspension worthy for poor decision making but it was done during the play in the heat of battle. To me it is not equal to the 2 games Chucky got for a blatant attempt to permanently injure.


Tkachuk should have been given 5.

Like Deb said, the hit on Bear was as bad but his name isn’t Pieterangelo and his team isn’t Vegas. 

Bear’s shoulders are parallel with the boards and not perpendicular like Pietrangelo’s. The difference is the outcome is far more dangerous by sending Pietrangelo head first into the boards which is highly dangerous, Bear went flying forward to the ice, not the boards where he could break his neck. Mind you, severe whiplash can occur and a player can get injured on both plays. The potential level of injury is far higher in Pietrangelo’s case. Either way its a hit from behind, its just the possible outcomes are not quite the same.
