Video- High Hit By Chara On Wingels?

via CSNBayArea,

Sharks winger Tommy Wingels was forced from a game in Boston after taking a high hit from Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara with 2:28 to go in the first period. Wingels did not return.

from Kevin Kurz of CSNBayArea,

If McLellan had a problem with the Chara hit, he didn’t express it in his postgame presser, although he said earlier he “didn’t have a good angle, so I can’t comment.”

“You know what, every time somebody is hit now we quickly run to the video and we analyze – was it legal, was it illegal? It’s a hard game, and it’s played by hard players that have to get involved physically night in and night out,” said the head coach. “They have to take some lumps, too. We have to give some lumps, we have to take some lumps. If it’s dirty, I think it should be severely dealt with. If it’s hard hockey, than so be it.”

Watch the hit below and because of the far away camera view, I can't really tell what kind of hit it was...

The NHL will not take any action against Chara.

Chara gets his arms up. He’s so tall that such a move will almost always be a headshot. He has to keep his arms down to check. It’s sad the NHL won’t review, but being a star has advantages.

Only two cameras in the rink, and they’re both 200 ft. away from the hit?

So you’re saying it’s physics…
