Havlat Dunked By Kronwall

I’m on the Vineyard right now, so I’m not going to do much Loging. However, I wanted to throw up this hit that Nicklas Kronwall put on Martin Havlat. Honestly, I thought Havlat was dead, and it’s kind of creepy to watch him lay on the ice. The NHL should have a good time sorting out this one. Was it legal? Did Kronwall deserve a 5-minute major? I don’t know, you decide. When he made contact, his feet were on the ice, on his follow through his feet left the ice. I will say it was a clean when it comes to the contact, Kronwall’s elbow was tucked in, and it was all shoulder. Either way, Chicago blew a 3-0 lead only to win in overtime.

Congrats to ChickenParm for winning the Guess the Scorer contest, with his pick of the pride of UVM, Sharp. Lets do this again for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Please put your pick of who will score the first goal, in the comments section, along with the period and time to settle a tie.

    Absolutely legal. What a load of shit giving him a game misconduct and a 5 minute major. Hey Havlat, welcome to the big leagues buddy. Get your head up or take a shoulder induced coma.

    EVEN EDDIE (NO CHECK) OLCZYK AGREED THIS WAS A LEGAL HIT. OF COURSE EDDIE IS A WHOLE LOT BRAVER IN THE BOOTH THAN HE WAS ON THE ICE. I AM A HAWK FAN AND THIS WAS AN OLD TIME HOCKEY HIT. IF THE PUCK IS AT YOUR FEET, YOU ARE FAIR GAME.

    GO PENGUINS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      I was pretty sure Havlat was dead, and it was probably a very scary scene. Old Time Hockey is a great way to put it, yet you’ll see a lot of critics call this hit dirty just because they are in love with the “new NHL” and have just jumped on the band-wagon. Of course you never want to see a player get injured, in this case Havlat was temporarily put out of commission, but big hits are part of the game, and what sets a tempo. If only they would let allow fighting in the last minute of games, we would see some early ’90’s style of Blackhawk/Red Wings hockey.
