Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Michael Russo of Russo’s Rants,
Andrew Ebbett left the arena tonight in a neck brace because of neck, back and shoulder spasms after T.J. Oshie, who scored the lone goal 26 seconds into the third, executed a textbook slewfoot. Referees Kevin Pollock and Ian Walsh didn’t think so. If they did, Oshie would have gotten a match penalty and the Wild a five-minute power play in a 1-0 deficit.
One of the most dangerous hits I’ve seen. Oshie grabbed across Ebbett’s chest, swept his legs out from under him and Ebbett’s head slammed against the ice while he crashed into the boards. Ebbett tried to soften the blow with his shoulders and back, he said, which is why he thinks he’s paying the price now. Better than head smacking directly against the ice, however.
