Kronwall's Hit On Havlat

New, comments

For those of you who aren't watching the Wings/Hawks series (we don't blame you, we've watched very little of it too) here's the 'controversial' hit that Niklas Kronwall put on Martin Havlat. Kronwall was given a five minute major and a game misconduct while Havlat missed the rest of the game (unsurprising since he was essentially snoring on the ice with his eyes open).

From a purely objective standpoint, which for once we can claim because we don't like either team, this looks like a clean hit. The Hawks failed to capitalize on the five minute major, but the loss of Havlat seemed to shake them for the rest of the period. He'll be evaluated today to determine if he can skate in game four tomorrow.

Take a look at the video; what do you think?
