Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,
What was the first thing you thought of when you saw Hossa lean in on Hamhuis as they both chased a puck into the corner? The hit on Hossa’s teammate, Brian Campbell, courtesy of Alex Ovechkin earlier in the regular season.
In both cases, the offending players seemed to hold up slightly just as contact was made, but the defensemen were off balance enough to be sent hurtling into the boards.
Dangerous? Yes. Reckless? It depends on your definition of reckless.
Of course, in the NHL, where every day is a brand new day, the two incidents end up being treated as though they were from different planets.
