The Malik Report

Red Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey received a major penalty for this hit on Ryan Getzlaf, and every Red Wings fan agreed that this was stupid and unnecessary:
NHL.com describes the hit as follows:
Anaheim Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf left the ice with a facial injury at 14:20 of the first period of a game against the Detroit Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena on Tuesday night.
Getzlaf was hit from behind by Detroit defenseman Kyle Quincey as the two prepared for a puck battle in the corner. Getzlaf appeared to catch his skates in the ice and hit the boards face-first.
Bleeding from his mouth, Getzlaf left the ice and headed to the dressing room. Quincey was assessed a boarding major and game misconduct.
Getzlaf entered Tuesday with a point in the past 14 games he's played in. He leads the Ducks with 39 points (16 goals, 23 assists).
It's still on Quincey to not make the hit when he "sees the numbers."
