Video: Senators’ Karlsson gives Kunitz the flip

May 19, 2013, 9:22 PM EDT

A lot has been made about the struggles of Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson, however he’s been a physical presence so far in Game 3 against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Perhaps this will help Karlsson break free from the difficulties he’s faced in this Eastern Conference semifinal series with the Penguins.

The talented 22-year-old Karlsson rocked Penguins’ Chris Kunitz with a solid, open-ice body check at the Ottawa blue line late in the first period.

      They finally got him. He flopped quite a few times on Neal earlier in the series.

      Funny b/c Cooke did this check in the first series and got “reemed” by NBC for being dirty for checking low.
