I don’t know if I should cringe, laugh, or cry watching this video. The Chicago Blackhawks had a lot of trouble with the physical play of the Detroit Red Wings in Game 4 of the NHL Western Conference Semis. The Red Wings blanked the Blackhawks 2-0 and took a commanding 3-1 series lead. Nothing showed that dominance more than this monster Jonathan Ericsson hit on Bryan Bickell during the second period.
It appears that the initial hit caused Bickell to fall and hit his head on the ice because he was grabbing the back of his helmet as he struggled to get back up. As soon as he was able to regain balance on his skates, he feel in dramatic fashion…twice.
