Videos-  Matt Dumba Hit On Mikael Backlund

Michael Russo tweet, (also Mikko Koivu was injured on a hit from Mark Giordano so see his recent tweets)

Prediction: League will see this as shoulder check with incidental head contact.

Eric Francis tweet,

Bruce Boudreau suggested after the game the league should be looking at the Giordano hit on Koivu and Lomberg flying off the bench to fight Dumba. He’s right on the second front, as Lomberg will undoubtedly get one game. Boudreau thought the Dumba hit on Backlund was clean

I didn’t think the hit was dirty but he sure is close to charging by leaving his feet
