Just put skirts on them. Tennyson and many other players in todays NHL practice bad habit of turning back to checkers along the glass! You never saw players do this decades ago because they were smarter and taught not to. Tennyson should be aware and protected himself better. If Tennyson was a few feet away from the boards and Reaves boarded him I would agree with this ruling but the fact he was sight seeing the fans against the glass while playing the puck makes this ruling a joke to me.

Reaves sees numbers the whole way and doesn’t even try for the puck. Deserved suspension.

Seriously, dude? Knock that “Just put skirts on them!” sexist nonsense, and use some reasoning here. There’s no reason to finish a check like this, at the very least this is charging which is illegal anyway. He’s using his body to protect the puck. It’s a simple play, and Reaves actually could’ve played the puck, which is another simple play had he read the reverse, and intercepted. Your sexist nonsense and defense of this play is the only joke here, amigo.

Should have been more than 3 games. As noted above, Tennyson sees numbers the whole time. He had lots of timebto make a good play.

To respond to the “put skirts on them” comment, I am all in favor of hitting in the game. It just needs to be done cleanly (IE; safely) not this Gudas/Torres crap we keep seeing.
