Eric Staal's hit was a prototypic hit that results in a concussion. Most concussions comes from when your jaw is pushed into the head basically. A hit on jaw is alot worse than a 10x as hard hit to the back of the head, in principle. Eric's shoulder hit Marc square on the jaw. And it was hard.
Could he have had a sore knee too? I would be suprised if he didn't. But he got a concussion and missed time because of it. No doubt.
