Video- Dimitry Orlov Check On Kevan Miller

The refs reviewed the major call, made it a double minor.  Right call?

Miller won’t return, taken to hospital for tests/observation.

Hit was completely unnecessary.

Should have stayed a major and kept WAS on the PK for five minutes.

I don’t know. I’m usually the first to demonize bad hits but this looks more like a hockey play to me. The live feed def looked worse than the replays.  I’ve been taken down like that plenty of times. Just looked like unfortunate timing and it also looked like he hit his head on the ice harder than he was hit by orlov.

That’s what I saw it as well. His head actually bounced off the ice and I’m sure that’s what caused most of the damage.

Clean hit to shoulder. Great open-ice check.
