But that wasn't the case. It was a LEGAL HIT done at an ILLEGAL MOMENT.
Kind of sounds like the Chara hit on Pacioretty.

Seriously, any hit that is made when another player isn't expecting it (doesn't have any reason to expect) is extremely dirty. If a player doesn't have a chance to defend himself, he's completely at the mercy of the opponent (like Pacioretty).
