    It was a terrible check from Stumpel against Wichser of Switzerland. Wischer is injured (broken pelvis?) because heat the open gate of the swiss bench. And Stumpel took just 2 min. And Wischer hasn't the puck at this moment

    It's not nice from the Slovak player. Have you seen this outrageous check?

    Havnt seen it..but if this is true he should have gotten a Major and a game misconduct. This is the 2nd time his type of injury has happened in the past 2 months with the stupid door being opened on the bench..if the puck is around then KEEP THE DOOR CLOSED for crying out loud.

    Stumpel actually hit someone?

    The door was open because Wichser was no longer involved in the play, sliding (not even skating) toward the door when he got checked from behind. That should have been a match penalty, not a game misconduct.

    That said, congratulation to Slovakia who rebounded well from its 5-1 defeat. Switzerland's 1-0 lead after the first half of the game could be used as a benchmark for highway robery.

    Should have closed the gate.

    Go over the boards.

    Maybe they should have a rule that the board doors don't open unless play is stopped (or the player is too injured to climb over the boards).

    A comment from the swiss head coach Krueger on this fact:

    "To hit a player when the puck is in the corner, I would have thought that it was worthy of a major penalty. We've probably lost Wichser for the rest of the tournament."

    The puck was in the corner when Stumpel hit him. He was unlucky the door opened cause if it wasnt open, he would have just have been hit hard against the boards but with the doors open, he caught the rim of the doors with his hip.

    SUI still scored on the PP from that penalty though.

    It was weird he hit him so hard and he was without the puck too. Weird.

    It looked like he was just finnishing his check ( a little late). But he guy had the puck, and the hit didnt look like an intent to injured or anything. It didnt even look very hard to me.

    Have to disagree

    Wichser had already given the puck away down low and turned around to go out and Stumpel still finished his check even though the puck was not there anymore and he saw the gate was open

    Typical act of frustration and definitely deserves a match penalty
