Watch the replay of the Savard hit and watch the replay of Johanson getting hit.. nearly identical.Yes. They were bad hits but not out of their way Matt Cooke hits. It happens with physical teams. That also wasn’t a slew foot. It was a misplayed battle for the puck that was a tripping.
Blues hit high all series and often had the butt end of their sticks up high...and head hunted all series. It's disingenuous to simply call it physical.
And to say that was a misplayed puck battle.. dude stuck his knee out and took the guys legs out with his stick..
