The Kunitz Hit

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

At the time, Chris Kunitz’s flying hit on Kimmo Timonen early in the game looked like it had the potential to be a controversial part of the day’s proceedings. But by the end of the afternoon, no one seemed all that interested in making a big deal of it.

Kunitz flew into Timonen just behind the Flyers’ net in the first six minutes of the game, and the initial look suggested he had either hit or grazed Timonen’s head with his forearm or elbow….

“Man, it’s a hard hit,” Philadelphia coach John Stevens said. It was kind of an odd game. This Kunitz, he plays hard. Originally, I thought he left his feet. Now, I’m not sure if he left his feet or he just went in the air when he went through the hit.”
