Yesterday’s game featured what I thought was a potentially career ending hit on Kronwall. I was watching the St. Louis feed and even their announcers were stunned at how dirty Chris Stewart’s hit was. (Btw, the St. Louis announcers aren’t terrible. That’s rare I can say that.) Click the jump for the ruling and thoughts.
Well today, Shanahan’s banhammer came down and it landed on 3 games.
Is that enough? I think so. I would have said five, however, you have to factor in the fact that Stewart missed near the entire game, so essentially that’s four games. That’s close enough.
It was a brutally dangerous hit and despite the fact that we got our ass beat last night, we can be thankful that Kronner’s ok. We all live to play another game.
