brad-stuart-destroys-r-j-umbergerTotal Pro Sports-  During the game 3 of the playoff series between the Detroit Red Wings and the Columbus Blue Jackets, there was yet another bone-jarring hit.  This time Red Wing defender Brad Stuart delivered the blow to Columbus forward R.J. Umberger.

The hit was fantastic, but the real story here is the this is the second time that R.J. Umberger has been blown-up big time, in playoff hockey.

The first big hit came  a few years ago when he was a member of the Philadelphia Flyers and Brian Campbell destroyed him.  It was one of the biggest hits in NHL history.  I thought R.J. would learn his lesson after a hit like that, I guess not.  Here are both the hits for your enjoyment.
