Video- Zach Sill Hit On Adam McQuaid

from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE,

Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid was knocked out of Tuesday night’s game against the Washington Capitals thanks to a vicious hit from behind by Washington’s Zach Sill, which is now being reviewed by the NHL Department of Player Safety.

The incident took place in the middle of the second period, and went without any kind of penalty call on the ice against Sill.

“They didn’t, I guess, seem to get a good look at it, or just seemed to think it was maybe two minutes at best,” said Claude Julien. “I had the luxury of going back to my office and looking at the replay. Obviously, for me, there should have been a call there.

“But you know we’ll see how the league deems it. It was definitely a hit from behind in my book, but we’ll let the other people take care of it as always.”

Man, i don’t know. The bruin knows still is coming and turns right then left again and is more pushed sideways into the boards than from behind. I don’t know that it was malicious, but was a hard hit into the boards. If the league hasn’t done anything to get Rinaldo or gudas or marchand off the ice, i don’t see them doing much here. I mean, they put Pronger in the DPS.
