Zach Smith Takes a Head Shot

Zach Smith takes a shot in the head coming through the middle; Chris Neil and Ben Holmstrom duke it out.

Smith looks alright, far as we know. The only penalties on the play were to Neil, an instigator and misconduct.

I didn’t see who that defenseman was, but Smith’s head was down as a result of the hip-check while Holmstrom already committed to hitting Smith in the shoulder. I don’t think he’ll get suspended. We’ll see, though.

that was pretty bad.  That is the same type of hit richards put on booth, and cooke put on savard.
