    Janssen destroys Matt Bradley, gets game misconduct. Is it enough?

    This is a clip from last night's shocking Blues win over the best team in the NHL the Washington Caps.

    It was a very spirited game to say the least. Early in the 1st period the Blues' Cam Janssen rocked Matt Bradley. There's an entertaining scrap following the hit. Janssen got an interference penality, 5 for fighting and a game misconduct that ejected him from the game. This hit however may have implications well past the Olympics break.

    Is this a dirty hit? Or was Bradley just too enamored with his well threaded pass?

    Rumor has it that Janssen may be serving a 3-game suspension for the hit.

    Bradley got caught watching what he did and not staying in the game, so I say no to that being a dirty hit. The only part that strikes me is whether or not Janssen saw that Bradley didn't have the puck when he checked him...

    All in all, great hit and a good fight to follow by Laing.

    I don't think there is any doubt that that is dirty and he will get suspended for it. If that was ok there would be dozens of those hits per game. Panger pretty much called it.

    I don't know much about hockey, but that guy had gotten rid of the puck a long time before the hit came, seems cheap to me.
