McDonald boarding call on Lovejoy


Recommended Posts

My only issue with it is he slowed skating to line him up from behind. I think the 5 was fair, though I was surprised they called it. He does extend his arms and body rides Lovejoy's head into the boards. Don't think it's McDonald's norm though. Extremely reckless. Intent to injure? I dunno why ...

They always say that it's the players responsibility not to put themselves into that position.

But now the player with the puck is turning towards the boards and hoping for the penalty.

I'm not saying that's what happened here but ....

Yeah it looks like he turned to retrieve the puck and braced his legs out to shield it so he could move it up the boards. I think he expected a bump but nothing like the arm extension hit he got.
