Kronwall and Mcleod hit
This is awful and bad. However, Kronwall put himself in this situation.
Kronwall with his head down abruptly changed direction with McLeod 3 steps or so behind him. This pretty much gave McLeod little time to adjust his hit. I really think Mcleod thought Kronwall was gonna get the puck and go around the net.
If Kronwall would have continued around the net he be fine and probably would have gotten hit but not like this.
Mcleod is gonna get the book thrown at him with at the in-person meeting.

Movement in all extremities, and he was doing well enough in the locker room that they did not transport him to the hospital. Diagnosed with a concussion. Hope he back on the ice soon.

I also want to point out what a stupid play it was by #52 to come in and wrestle Mcleod right away while Kronwall laid on the ice motionless. A couple skates came very close to inflicting some serious damage to Kronwall.

I had this same thought when I watched the replays yesterday. Both players' skate blades came dangerously close to a defenseless Kronwall as he lay on the ice.

Both players involved are douches, in my opinion. Not that that absolves McLeod of a terrible hit, mind you.
