He’s coherent. He feels alright but wasn’t able to come back,” DeBoer said.

Terrible call.

That’s some old-time Gordy Howe/Micky Redmond hockey right there.

You want to run a guy, you just might pay the price as Sestito learned.

What that penalty tells me is that it’s not tolerable to defend yourself.  You’re required to stand there, let the guy run you, and possibly get hurt as a result.

Maybe Prosser should have “drawn” a boarding penalty by turning his back to Sestito which seems to be the norm these days.
