The Chicago Blackhawks received a five-minute power play after St. Louis Blues tough guy Ryan Reaves was ejected for a charging hit on Christian Ehrhoff.

You can watch that check, with multiple replays, in the video above.

Blues fans weren’t happy about that call, but that often is the case with home crowds. The difference here is that many others felt that the punishment was excessive, including plenty of members of the NBCSN crew.

Here’s a GIF of the hit, too:

Mike Milbury and Keith Jones believed that it was the wrong call, too.

Update: The NHL might take a look at the hit for possible supplementary discipline.
