Agreed. But he'll still be suspended for a hit to the head.

Just amazes me that Paccioretty of all people can go out and have zero respect for his fellow players.

I'm guessing he gets 2 or 3 games. Looked like a shoulder to head hit, but under the new rules, if the head is the principle point of contact - which it is in this case -, it is considered illegal. Looked a bit blindside too. Letang bleed, but didn't look injured. We'll see.

Letang has his head down following a shot. Don't think it was dirty, but MaxPac could get 2 games.

Letang had his head down. But patches should of definitely eased up or just push him off the puck. From someone who almost broke their entire spinal cord, he probably should advocate a little more safety in that area.

To me that's a clean hit.

Letang was looking directly at Pacioretty a second before contact, then looks down as he's shooting the puck. Pacioretty gets both shoulder and head with the hit.

Nasty collision. That happened so fast, I don't think the intent was there for Maxpac to injure, but that was rather the result of what should have been a good hockey play

I expect a suspension, or at least a fine.

But you can tell Pac feeling like **** on the bench, so I don't think it was his intent to headshot Letang, especially considering the Chara incident of last season and simply because he isn't a dirty player at all.

Suspension? Maybe, but I'd need to see a better angle of the play to comment. RDS didn't give have any good camera angle.

Letang bend over in the very last moment before impact. It was a clean hit but since it's the Penguins Pacioretty will sit a couple of games.

By the way, there was no Penalty on the play.
