    This Chara hit tonight has totally changed my view on head-shot rules.

    I know that I like to post big hockey hits, but this one is particularly gruesome and disturbing.

    Ironic that it's on the 7-year anniversary of the Bertuzzi - Moore incident.

    It's interference for sure, and I have a hard time believing that Chara wasn't intentionally checking him in to the Plexiglas enclosure of the bench.
    The physicality of the NHL was one of the most compelling aspects of the game to me. I thought this crusade against head shots was really really weak.

    This makes me sick to my stomach. Things need to change. Hits like this could potentially kill someone. I hope the NHL should make a statement and suspend the "All-Star" for the duration of the season and playoffs.

    heres another clip

    makes the Gillies hit last week look like childs play. Gillies got 10 games Chara should be out for the year. Chara knows exactly what he was doing and there is a history between the 2.

    Cheap shot for sure

    Once Pacioretty chips the puck by Chara, Chara is supposed to let him go the fact that he is ridding him into the glass is interference. The fact that he intentionally drives him into the center glass shows the intent.

    Good god that is brutal. I don't follow hockey much, but I would think there should be large backlash for that hit. Except it wasn't even a hit, more like abusing the rink or something.

    Not excusing at all what Chara did, because that was a nasty, dirty hit, but these two teams have thrown it down a couple times this season and given that Boston was down 4 goals, doesn't really surprise me.

    I think it drives home the point that there was intent to injure with that hit. There is a history, which adds even more proof

    Here was the incident between the 2 earlier this year. This is also the incident that set the bad blood in motion as there was a game in Feb with a lot of penalties.

    Pacioretty scores the game winner in overtime VS the Bruins Jan 8th and taps Chara in the back. Chara takes offense and makes an *** out of himself. at 1min 13 seconds

    I am putting this more on the design of the rink.


    NHL teams need to be added to the favorite teams section.
