    I’m a Bruins fan but I still would never wish that kind of hit on anyone. Doesn’t matter who it is.

    Mark Scheifele's hit was outstanding and is what is needed in the game of hockey. It has become to much of a up/down boring skating game that allows players to disrespect their opponents just like what other former players have said. Watch these hits when Hockey was played by men. fibill.info/nick/videot/qpF8nKm9Z6yfa60

      @Brandon Lewis What Shifele did was intent to injure, if you don’t see that your just dumb. He clearly had no intent on playing the puck or stoping a goal. He knew it was going in and so decided to hit Evans out of anger. If he wanted to stop the goal he could have poke checked him or tried to cut Evans off behind the net. Also, at least in most rulebooks distance travelled has to do with a charge but now that I think of it, I don’t think it’s in the nhl.

      @USA Sucks He didn't hit him in the head. So you are arguing with what everyone has said. you are arguing what most NHL pros have said. You are arguing what even the NHL safety guy even said. You clearly lack knowledge of hockey... You never played hockey with real men I can tell you that lol.... Try skating as fast as you can down the wing with your head down just to take a shot. No difference here. Evans put himself in that position.... Charging has nothing to do with skating fast or distance traveled like this play. Thats not he rule. They got the rule wrong trying to come down with a punishment. They just created more issues for further hits down the road... thats like saying a guy comes off the bench and skates 50 ft hard into the boards. Is that a penalty? NO but for you it is... EVANS skated the same distance at the same time. AND Scheifele stopped skating for like 30 ft. You need to learn the game. Hell you need to watch the play lol

    • USA Sucks

      @Brandon Lewis It was a charge because of the distance he skated. You cant hit someone directly after sprinting up the ice like that. On top of that if you look at a couple different angles Schifele seemed to have elbowed him in the head. Also, from what I can tell, it seems like you wanted Evans to just pass the puck when he went behind the net? I'm confused as to why you dont like him doing a wrap around. I don't think Evans was stupid for having his head down during a wrap around, most nhl players do that to make sure the puck goes in the net. It's especially trickier on the backhand so I can see why he's looking down.

    • Brandon Lewis

      @USA Sucks stupid comments.... where do i begin. Yes you can wrap around with your head down but most are from short distance. Fancy? Lol you dont need to be fancy for this to be irresponsible bu evans. Ive said about 500 times. You clearly lack understanding. Or are just dumb. Nobody would do what Evans did. Nobody. The defense dont even want to carry the puck after skating long distance with their back turned and move it along the boards... think ok!!!.... its not charging. Charging is when you make a late hit skating fast into someone. If the hitee is turned its boarding. Evans skated the same distance as scheifele. Its not charging. The NHL screwed up but he had to save his job from his past mistakes. Also poke check lol you never played hockey. 2 bad things would happen if he did that. Making the hit and quickly getting the puck was the right move. Also just to hurt him is fine. Thats why you back check... poke check lol lol lol... also the puck went in but it may have hit the post. Or hit ice shavings. You dont want evans near the puck if that happened. You want him on his ass where he belongs

      @Brandon Lewis You said that I admitted that I didn’t watch hockey earlier. I never did. You also said that the players I was mentioning weren’t goons when I stated that they were going to be or something like that which really makes no sense.

    Absolutely not necessary hit to the head. The puck was in the net, Scheifele was flying in on him on purpose knowing he would score and the game is completely out of reach, he was pissed they lost so he takes it out on Evans. Suspend him for 20 games at the start of the season, see if he does it again.

      @Matt Vacaro I’ve played the game for nine years. And he was going for the empty net to seal the game, not to rub it in. He had his head down because he was guiding the puck in, Schifele saw that he had his head down, decided not to go for a poke check and instead went for a blindside, high hit.

    • Matt Vacaro

      Ever heard the phrase "keep your head on a swivel"? Have you played the game? I learned that lesson the hard way. Empty net especially you are rubbing it in on someone. PAY

    lol, even the commentator didn't think it was a dirty hit - the problem with these plays is that everyone gets to watch it in slomo and it makes look like Scheifele has time - they were both on a charge, Evans to try and score and Scheifele to defend...when I first seen it, I immediately thought clean hit, and I still think so. I also think this stupid call to suspend Scheifele is going to change the game some more, this is the frikkin playoffs for crying out loud.

    • USA Sucks
      USA Sucks

      Even in real time you can clearly see that Scheifele has time, he also could have easily gone for a poke check. Also, what about the elbow to the head, I guess that’s clean. And then there’s the fact that the puck was in the net when he made the hit. Maybe this hit would be okay back in 1985, when you were literally allowed to murder people on the ice. But it’s not okay now.

    Looked like a clean open ice hit to me. It was Evans's decision to circle back to get the goal. Evans is the hero but will likely think twice the next time he wants to come around the net with his head down. Hopefully Evans was just winded and will be ready to play again soon, a little wiser.

    The hit was about as dirty a hit as I've ever seen; But whoever the guy was who was holding back the dogpile just made me feel human again 🥺. Side note: If your teammate gets knocked out and isn't moving at all several seconds later, you are a terrible teammate and an idiot if you start a fight standing right next to his unconscious body. You know what's worse than getting brutally knocked out? Getting your carotid artery severed because your own teammate decided that 5 feet away from your unconscious face was as good a place as any to start pushing and shoving people who are all standing on razor sharp, double edged steel blades. Which happen to be pretty difficult to keep your balance on when you're being repeatedly shoved by a 6'4" defenseman who weighs like 220 pounds, it turns out. Who'da thunk?

    I see Scheifele's point, he had no clue that Evan's wasn't going to protect himself. Watching it over again, I don't think Evans looked back because someone yelled he had time, so he automatically thought he had time to put it in. That person must have been holding his breath seeing Scheifele swoop in for the hit. It was an unexpected play for Evans and a poor choice in play by Scheifele. But when you injure a player, just like when you accidentally take out some teeth with an errant stick, even though it was accidental, it's your responsibility. The hit was too high and the wrong play by an inexperienced defenseman. Ask any defenseman, with the goalie out, the most you can do is try to block the shot that is coming. In this case, that means Scheifele would have ended up diving with his stick out in front to block the wraparound, and ramming himself head first into the net. Instead he chose to let the goal go in, and go for the body instead. He missed and knocked the player out unconscious. Scheifele has lots of time to think about his selfish house league play and will likely cost the Jets the series. Maybe he goes to Buffalo for Eichel, ya can't keep guys like that around the team.

    I wonder if this will go down as one of those career defining moments for Mark. As in it will overshadow his insanely fast snap shot in the slot that took us to the conference finals a few years back. I don’t know anything about Dale Hunter except his cheap shot post goal. It’s such a shame such a good player lost his cool and did something stupid like this.

    I do agree this is a bad hit and all but Evans didn't even take a look to see if anyone would have been comming for him with speed and he had a solid 20 - 30 feet to take a look back to be ready to brace him self for the hit after putting the puck into the net. I think 4 games is to much Scheifele he is not a goon like Wilson, he did deserve at least 2 game's due to the face that he doesn't look for chances to do these kind of things.

The only reason they suspended him was because the guy got hurt after he got blasted after trying a wraparound What did Evans think? That Scheifele was going to simply wave him in? Now, I know the game has changed, but come on now. If you must suspend, one game max. Utterly ridiculous. I can hear Derek Sanderson now.

      I totally agree. You gotta keep your head up and protect yourself. Just like the Matt Cook/Marc Savard incident. It’s a clean hit with an infortunate result. Savard didnt protect himself and Cook had to pay the price for that. I’m glad I can finally agree with a Bruins fan on something. (From a Penguins fan)

    A stupid bone headed play by Mark Scheifele - how stupid ? Well with a well deserved 4 game suspension , he just removed himself from the team at the most critical time of the year - the playoffs. He claims he didn't mean to injure but nobody ( including the NHL Dept. of Player Safety ) believes that. So now after Montreal has taken a 2 games to 0 lead in the series , it's looking like he would be much better off playing than watching. Even his comments afterwards show he's not the brightest bulb in the room.
