Video: Perreault hits Carrick; Soshnikov knocked into bench

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.

As you can see above, Connor Carrick was shaken up by a hit from Jets forward Mathieu Perreault.

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).
