Late in the second period of a one goal game, rookie center Lias Andersson caught Bruins star center Patrice Bergeron with this hit. It’s interesting. Of course, he got a double minor for it while Bergeron got only two minutes for jumping him.
At this point, I don’t know what to say. It’s iffy. The hit is eerily similar to the Mika Zibanejad one that somehow was called a major and game misconduct, which was later rescinded by the NHL.
I think Andersson plays a hard nosed game. He’s a young player who’s quietly making progress now that David Quinn has him centering the third line. You see subtle plays where he’s involved. I hope he doesn’t get suspended for that hit. It’s not worth it.
There was also this between Brendan Lemieux and Zdeno Chara.
The Bruins lead 2-1 on a pair of David Pastrnak goals. There could be some fireworks in the third.
