Well a lot has happened with the Pittsburgh Penguins and hitting in the last two games.

We have had a suspension and two fantastic hits, big collisions showing that hitting is not out of the game.

Stanton knocked Hornqvist out of the game, and himself at the same time; clean legal hit.

Then Comeau bails himself out of a broken stick with a clean hit in open ice too.

See it is possible to hit and be clean, stop bemoaning the 'new NHL', with what we know about concussion it is legally imperative that the league holds the players to a higher standard than it did before 2000.

It is about player health and safety.
