A case could be made for one of the Neal hits, but as someone posted in another thread, Giroux looked like a WWE wrestler faking an injury.
How was Schenn's chin bleeding if he got hit in the chest?
Giroux was picking up his mouthguard off the ice and lost in balance, he wasn't faking anything.
Schenn definitely embellished somewhat on the Asham hit if you ask me - he acted like he was shot, yet he didn't miss a shift.
Getting hit in the windpipe and chin will definitely make you winded and sore, but it doesnt mean you'll miss the rest of the game.
