Video: Roman Josi hurt after late hit by Anton Blidh

Not long after inadvertently potentially injuring Tuukka Rask with a slap shot, Roman Josi may have suffered an injury thanks to a hit that may or may not have been inadvertently questionable.

(You can decide for yourself after watching the hit in the video above.)

The deliverer of the questionable hit was Anton Blidh of the Boston Bruins, who received a major penalty for interference.

Here’s a GIF of the hit, if you prefer that method:

However you feel about Blidh’s intent … yikes, that doesn’t look good for Josi. The Predators are already down a key defenseman in P.K. Subban, so a serious injury could be an enormous blow to the team’s fledgling playoff hopes.

Considering Rask’s importance to the Bruins, this could be a costly game for both teams.

Update: The Predators announced that Josi suffered an upper-body injury and will not return.
