5 minute major is all that needs to be assessed here.

If you go shoulder to shoulder with the guy at the face off circle you should know he's coming in right behind you and not go into the corner with your back facing out and your head down.

However he didn't turn into the hit and McDonald didn't let up.

IMO the hitee needs to be more aware, but McDonald needs to let up there.

Major penalty, but no suspension.

I doubt it. The 5 min major was the right call, and enough.

wasn't Colin Mcdonald a Penguins farmhand the past couple years? Maybe he has issues with Lovejoy. lol

I don't think it'll get a suspension, but that was an easy major for them to call.

clear case of trying to keep the game under control and prevent any escalation.

as an islanders fan, all i can say is.....YOU are embarassing us all!!!!!!!!!!

five and a game misconduct was ok with me. it was a stupid and somewhat dangerous play. not as dangerous as some are making it out to be........but still somewhat dangerous.
i can see shanahan doing a small fine though. just to get mc donalds attention.

5 minutes for sure but not as dirty as stated then again I am old school and these types of hits were very common back in the day.

Bad hit. Has to be more careful on a play like that.

Even though this guy is in the league because the Islander d-core is so depleted, he never seemed like the type of guy to really try to hurt someone.

Agreed.

It's one of those calls that's hard to argue otherwise. He broke a pretty clear rule, but it wasn't one of those that was exceptionally dangerous or with malice aforethought. It was dangerous, but not suspendable.

CMac is a wing.

And I don't think he was trying to hurt Lovejoy. He just got carried away and did something very stupid.

...he doesn't play defense, he's a winger.
