Andrew Alberts, on his knees a few feet from the boards and completely defenseless was drilled and driven into the boards by Scott Hartnell. Hartnell defended the hit saying "I'm a guy who always finishes his checks", but this is a case where he clearly could have and should have left the vulnerable player alone.
Hartnell was given a major penalty and a game misconduct.
The Bruins didn't retaliate. Bruins captain Zdeno Chara:
"We probably ended up with some bruises, but we have two points and that's the most important thing right now. It's up to the league to address things like that."
Personally, I don't see a huge suspension coming for Hartnell. Maybe four games. I said before and I'll say again, though, that the League has to take into consideration that this is a team with multiple offenses.
These goons will be in Raleigh on Wednesday. I'm a little worried.
