Bad hit of the night: Tom Setito on Tobias Enstrom

Tom Sestito was brought up for the Winnipeg Jets-Pittsburgh Penguins game last night, and he did two things:

1. He fought Chris Thorburn;

2. He threw this check on Tobias Enstrom:

Here's what Jets coach Paul Maurice had to say about the hit post-game:

“Toby is at the hospital now, he’s getting checked for facial fractures, so we’ll have a better idea about that tomorrow,” Maurice said.

Definitely a bad hit.  No excuse for it. 

Dustin B. threw a similar hit on Justin Schultz last time these two teams met.  Schultz was out for 3 games as a result.

The Jets want to play a physical game.  They hurt Maatta last game as well and he is out for the season.

Although I think the Sestito hit was bad and deserves a suspension, I feel zero sympathy for this organization.
