Hits from behind are freakin' dangerous, more so than hit to the heads, if you don't want to believe than do so, but never underestimate them. Serious neck injury, or even worse, being paralyzed. Didn't Erik Cole's injury teach anyone.
I didn't see Pisani bending over. I saw him standing up straight, trying to fight the puck out and Gorge's, who weighs 10 pounds less than Pisani, and isn't a known hitter at all (he falls over more often from checking someone than them falling over), hit Pisani more in the side than in the back. Pisani goes down from the check and it's called boarding. Honestly, I saw no check in the back, and that's why I will continue to laugh if people consider Gorges check to Pisani's side worse than Torres hit on Milan head.
