While I agree with this, there were also quite a few checks from behind that looked pretty dangerous as well, Ryan McDonagh on Anthony Duclair being one that sticks out .

MC, others have said the same regarding the hit on Duclair, but when it happened I thought he sold it a bit with the head whiplash.  Decide for yourself.

A suspension for the Duclair hit is a hard call to be honest. I am glad the penalty was called for the shove McDonagh gave him, but not sure a suspension would be warranted. Very borderline.

The biggest difference to me on the Coleman hit and the Duclair hit is Coleman was unaware Bennett was flying up from behind. You can tell Coleman was in repose and not in a defensive posture. Duclair seemed more ready for the hit. Plus Bennett was flying from 15 plus feet away where McDonagh just gave Duclair a shove. Big difference. Mass x Speed = the amount of force.

+19 Dawg. It’s mass x velocity (speed) squared. One of the first things I learned in emt school when we had the flintstones ambulance.  wink

Hate to be the physics police but I wear that badge today

Force = Mass x Acceleration - aka Netwon’s Second Law

Momentum = Mass x Velocity
