(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.
