The Instigator |Episode 9

Clean Hit = Fight

Listen to “The Instigator – Episode 9 – Clean Hit = Fight” on Spreaker.

Why in todays hockey does a big/clean hit often result in a instant retaliation fight? Last week Chicago Blackhawks Ryan Hartman laid out Jakub Silfverberg on a clean shoulder to shoulder hit. Silfverberg had his head down, and it was a clean hit, but three Anaheim Ducks attacked Hartman. Why, it was a legal hit!
