Peter Laviolette And Steve Ott Engage In A Shoving Match (Video)
The Niklas Kronwall Hit Parade Continues (Video)
On Wednesday night it was Vancouver Canucks forward Ryan Kesler who stepped onto the train tracks belonging to the “Niklas Kronwall express.” On Thursday night, it was Tim Jackman’s turn to get lit up by the Detroit Red Wings defenseman.
In both instances, the Wings’ opposition were able to capitalize immediately following the check, as Kesler received a penalty for retaliating but the Canucks scored a shorthanded goal seconds later, while Jackman took the hit to make a pass that led to a Calgary Flames goal last night.
Sometimes you simply have to take a hit to make a play. Kesler and Jackman did just that.
You can check out both hits by Kronwall in the videos below.
