You make the call: Should Evgeni Malkin have been suspended for this hit?
What's your take on this hit? Should Malkin have to sit out for a few games, or was it only worth 2 minutes in the penalty box?
The announcers (and Puck Daddy) pointed out that Boychuk lowered his shoulder to go for the puck at the last minute, and that was what forced Malkin to hit him in the numbers instead of in the shoulder. Still, he was defenseless against the boards. What do you think the right punishment would have been, if anything?
No suspension for Malkin after hit from behind on Boychuk [Puck Daddy]
