This is my favorite hit ever. I don't care that it's against Boychuk. Clean hit, and Boychuk just hits a wall. Brutal.
Best hit I've ever seen, I still remember the sound it made when watching the game live on TV. I could swear I remember Bruins fans saying Neil turtled after the hit to avoid fighting Big Z
Like its been said, that was two husky guys who are very solid on their skates. SO much force involved, very lucky someone didnt get hurt.
Either way Im glad that now that the dust has settled it seems like even the Bruins fans can appreciate how monstrous and clean and rare that kind of hit is.
NVM, didnt realize this was the hit you were talking about.
this might be the hardest hit i have ever seen...what i find most impressive about it is that its in open ice, its a square hit (not a hit to the side), and when he gets hit his body not only stops going forward but does a full backflip and lands in the exact same spot he was hit in...it looks like something out of a cartoon
