THIS.WAS.AWESOME.  Anybody who thinks this was a charge needs to go watch basketball because you don't know an  f-ing thing about hockey.

OK, Yote, what's your take on this one?

Big hit, the checking player was gliding and not moving his feet, and he didn't leave his feet prior to making contact launching himself.  I would not call that charging.  Looking at the proximity to the boards, and how the puck carrier was just a few feet off the boards, and the hit violently threw the player into the boards, the checking player leaves himself open to a boarding call.

My call, clean hit.  Kid, get your head up.

You know how it is today, anytime a hit makes a big noise it must be a penalty, especially as you move down levels of hockey.  An NCAA game is going to be called tighter than the Stanley Cup Finals.

It's the big shift in mindset today and it starts at USA Hockey.  It used to be that you needed to take care of yourself on the ice, don't put yourself in a vulnerable position, especially close to the boards, and keep your head up.  Now the onus is all on the defensive (checking) player, that they are responsible for the other player and that they are supposed to lay off.  The big hit is penalized and you are only supposed to use body contact to separate the player from the puck in order to gain possession.  Frankly, taking that personal responsibility out of the game, where players need to not put themselves in bad positions, is the wrong thing.  Nowadays you have guys who think it is perfectly acceptable to expose his back to the checker while along the boards to "protect the puck" all the while putting themselves in a dangerous position to go head first into the boards.

This has been one hell of a hockey game. To make it even better we are going to overtime

Blues lose this series look no further than special teams. Their powerplay and penalty kill have been putrid. Bruins tie it up with a shorty
