It is a very dangerous play to have a 6th skater come on the ice and immediately check a player. Imagine the it the other way around: PK is skating up the ice and as soon as he hits the Bruin's blueline Chara just decides to jump off the ice and nail him, catching P.K. completely by surprise. The hit, in isolation, may be clean, but the play most certainly is not.
