Not necessarily a dirty hit, but Morrow was looking for it from a long way out, and the awkward location of the boards makes it extra dangerous. Like it or not, if star players keep getting knocked out something will have to be done.
Agreed. In general I hate all the fighting after a hard clean hit, but when someone takes a run at your star player like that and he's crumpled in the corner after flying headfirst towards the boards, I can understand dropping the gloves and going after the guy.
