The hit on JT behind the net in the last game that led to a goal was entirely his fault. Tavares had his head down. That being said, I completely agree with you. It's obvious that Tavares is the main target for hits as he is the biggest threat on the Islanders but, in response, the Islanders have to play more physical then they have been.
Also, and I hate to keep playing this card but it's true, Islanders physical play usually backfires on them. Carkners hit in the last game was called for boarding, yet the hit on Tavares the other night was not called at all.
