... here is the hit.
A little late in my opinion, not sure why it took so long to make this decision.
NEW YORK (December 10, 2011)—Montreal Canadiens forward Lars Eller has been fined $2,500, the maximum allowed under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, for boarding Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty in NHL Game No. 372 on Saturday, Dec. 3, in Los Angeles, the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety announced today.
The incident occurred at 4:48 of the first period. A minor penalty for boarding was assessed on the play.
Lars Eller of the Montreal Canadiens gives Drew Doughty of the LA Kings one of those push from behind hits and sends Doughty into the boards.
Eller received two for boarding, should he have received more? Doughty was fine by the way after about 20 seconds or so.
