Dirty or not? Brayden Schenn’s hit on T.J. Oshie

17 Comments

The Philadelphia Flyers and Washington Capitals have been very physical in Game 6, and it’s possible that T.J. Oshie was injured among the hard hits.

The question is: should it mean a suspension for Brayden Schenn?

Some people believe that Schenn went over the line with a check that prompted Oshie to leave the ice during the second period. There was no penalty on the play.

The two engaged in a fight during the opening moments of Game 5, so there’s some clear history between the two.

Again, more than a few people are calling for supplemental discipline.

Update: One thing that is likely to help Schenn’s cause: Oshie might be OK.
