    Seems pretty dirty from that angle.

    I thought more so for the elbow to Trouba's head.

    He clearly punches in the inside of Myers' leg as Myers is off balance.

    From that angle, it does not seem dirty at all.

    Watch Foligno crank Myers on the knee. I'd bet that's a right knee injury.

    See my post. Foligno cranks Myers in the right knee as he's going down.

    Are you guys really missing the punch to the back of the knee? Usually when you fall you brace yourself.

    The falling happens. That right arm shooting forward into the back of Myers knee looks a bit more suspect

    zero chance he is suspended, this clip cuts out right before where Foligno goes down to block the shot, gets back up and is off balanced and trying to move to the side leading to this unfortunate event.

    Looks a lot more like his momentum swings him from trying to grab onto Myers with his left arm to stop his fall.

    And if you knew that Foligno is quite good in martial arts, he would ever touch the ice again.

    I can't believe how many people actually think Foligno is coordinated enough to pull a targeted hit like that at full speed, when the guy barely manages to have the coordination enough to pull off a passable 4th line role.

    Looks like his stick was jammed, it popped loose, and his prying leverage he was trying suddenly had no resistance, thus the swing forward of his stick hand.

    Old style knee chop from the fifties and sixties. Only this one is blatant.
