Players are gonna look for the big hit on Prucha. It's been going on all year, it won't change. Prucha has to learn to keep his head up. Defensemen are going to look for the big hit once in a while and seeing how he's small, they know they can easily do it.

The thing is, despite the big hits on him, he shouldn't change the way he plays. He should be skating hard into the corners and playing physical. If he doesn't do those things, he'd be just about invisible out there. He just needs to be a bit more aware of the players around him so he can avoid those hits and protect himself. Prucha plays with an edge and I like that.

After looking over the replay, I think that Lukowich led with his elbow, but that's not going to be called. As long as his shoulder hit, it was clean. It's just too bad that players are going head-hunting. A good shoulder to chest hit is fine but going after a player's head is ridiculous.
