NHL will review Mike Green’s hit on Brett Connolly

Mar 9, 2012, 9:55 AM EDT

Mike Green didn’t receive a penalty for his devastating hit on Tampa Bay’s Brett Connolly, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that he’ll escape punishment. The NHL has scheduled a hearing Friday to discuss Green’s hit. You can judge the incident for yourself by checking out the clip below:

Although Green’s elbow appeared to make contact with Connolly head, Connolly was able to rejoin the Lightning before the period concluded. That will probably work in Green’s favor when the NHL decides what to do with him.

    That one SHOULD be penalized.

    Clearly saw him the whole way, rose UP to target the head and crunched his head into the boards.

    3 games coming – bank it.

      You are a pu&&y! Maybe you should be watching field hockey. Better yet maybe you could go jerk off Shanahan while he watches the hit over and over.

        That should be about enough for a ban dont you think Pro Hockey talk? Brings absolutely no intelect to the conversation.

        YAWN…and…whatever…it should be penalized.

        Stick to Facebook cyberfriends, this site is for adults.

        you think that’s how adults communicate? Hahaha enjoy unemployment in your future son because that level of maturity will go nowhere in life.

    Another rule that should be added is ‘roughing’ for hitting a player who is already engaged in a check.

    There has to be a suspension for that hit. Extremely surprised there was no penalty called. Between all the injuries and now this mike green cant catch a break, although this incident is all his doing.

    I feel there was no call because it was in Washington…and it was against Tampa.

    I think there should have been a penalty called and there should be a suspension for that. While not the worst hit in terms of violence or outcome, it was clearly a targetted elbow to the head.
