The Los Angeles Kings topped the Dallas Stars by a score of 4-3 in OT, but before that happened, captain Dustin Brown caught Stars forward Antoine Roussel with this hit:
Some believe that Brown hit him up high while others believe that he made contact with Roussel in a way that made the winger’s own stick connect with his head.
Brown, 28, didn’t receive a penalty for that check. He made a big impact overall, though, scoring two goals (including the game-tying one) and drawing a roughing penalty when he mixed things up with Philip Larsen.
Dropping like flies: Johnson, Killorn hurt in Bolts’ exhibition
You probably know the drill: injury updates are murky in the NHL basically from the moment a puck drops.
