    Curious to get the consensus on this. I thought it was pretty obvious.

    Provy definitely left his feet prior to contact, which is against the rules. So no, not clean.

    He didn't really need to do that. Would have sent Barzal flying even if he stayed low.

    ultimately clean but could've ended up really bad, you can chalk that up to luck

    Probably clean but cheap. That would be a penalty in the NFL. No need for Provorov to do that. Barzal could have easily been hurt bad or at the least a concussion. The NHL is trying to be more like the NFL and would like to avoid lawsuits as much as possible. Like hitting a defenseless Wide Receiver you'd think a hit like this would be banned.

    One of the best hits I have seen in a while. Absolutely clean. Better teach Barzal to keep his head up

    I’m not sure he did actually. He definitely comes up, but to me, it sure looks like his feet are on the ice until contact

    Hitting the player with the puck should be banned? What’s he supposed to do? Let Barzal walk in untouched?

    It was clearly a matter of time before Barzal got trucked and it was right on the blue line as I predicted. Lesson learned for Barzal, wonder if that would have been JT matchup had he still been on long island or Brooklyn or wherever they play these days.

    Perfect example of a clean open ice hit.

    He his feet left the ice because he angled his blades horizontally in order to slow down. He didn't jump.
