    Ouch. Didn't look like much at first but the replays don't look good. Gaudreau played a short PP shift then went to the dressing room. Unsure if the team sat him or it was concussion spotters

    McAvoy got 2 minutes for interference on the play

    Pretty clearly an avoidable hit to the head on an unsuspecting player

    A one game suspension sounds about right

    If Matheson got a two-game suspension for his hit, then I see no reason why this hit should not get at least two games as well.

    McAvoy has terrible game, get's beat for the 8th time so he feels like he has run over Gaudreau?

    As far as the hit goes I'm happy with the 2 minute penalty, didn't see head contact. Johnny not returning doesn't surprise me, why risk anything when you're up by 2. Especially when the Bruins were focused on running around like idiots rather than trying to win.

    Only thing that matters to Parros is whether there is an injury.

    0:50 for best angle.

    But I dunno. I don't think it's a suspension.

    That looks like an unnecessary hit with head contact. Would be surprised if there is no suspension.

    Unsuspecting maybe, but not blindside.

    Doesnt seem malicious. Hockey's a fast sport. Sometimes things like this can happen.

    Maybe it had something to do with Gaudreau standing in the crease whacking away?

    What? He literally headshots Gaudreau as Gaudreau is turning around. This is textbook blindside.

    Most definitely a suspendable offence if the NHL is at all serious about headshots. Clear targeting of the head here.
