In a 7-0 blowout, Erik Gudbranson big hit on Winnipeg’s Blake Wheeler might have been the high point for Florida.

    And Wheeler didn’t sook afterwards, he knew he didn’t do himself any favors. I think everyone who has played hockey has made the mistake assuming the dman is going to chase that puck. And when you take that lil jump step to try and get by the defenceman and leave your feet for that split second. He has you, and the result is above in the video
