Both the Toronto Maple Leafs and Winnipeg Jets are trying to climb into their conference’s wild card spots, so it’s not too surprising that they’re engaging in a physical contest on Tuesday.
Two hits stand out, with one being worrisome and the other being fairly amusing.
While that’s a cause for concern if Carrick is hurt, it seems like Nikita Soshnikov is OK after Chris Thorburn sent him about halfway into the Jet’s bench. Allow a mild bit of disappointment that Soshnikov didn’t take a full “seat” there. Those are the most amusing moments (unless you’re the frightened soul stuck in that situation).
