that play happens literally 20 times a game, every game, but the player doesn’t trip and fall forward.

I actually agree it’s kind of a weak call if he was ejected - even if it happened to one of my team’s guys, while it would suck, this really seems to be more of a case of unfortunate timing than a “hit from behind”. he really hardly pushed him. looked Schenn either simultaneously reached forward putting himself off balance or his foot simultaneously hit a rut. either way, the push itself didn’t look forceful enough to in and of itself cause that kind of fame

No game misconduct does make it seem a bit more fair

It was painful listening to those airheads talk about that play. That wasn’t much of a hit at all.

If anything, I’d say Schenn threw himself into the boards in an attempt to sell the call.

Flyers announce Schenn out about two weeks with an upper-body injury.

Also, reports are no discipline for the hit by MacKinnon.
