Here’s the hit, from NBC Sports (sorry, you have to watch an ad):
Niskanen didn’t return to the game, and will be evaluated today.
Some (incorrectly) suggested the hit was similar to the one by Randy Jones that nearly ended Bergeron’s career; others say Niskanen was going down anyways, and that Bergeron wasn’t trying to board him.
My two cents: Bergeron wasn’t trying to board Niskanen, but the result was boarding. Given Bergeron’s lack of priors, he ends up with a warning (or a fine, at worst).
What say you, Chowder people?
Suspension? Fine? Nada?
