Video: Bordeleau tossed for checking Schenn from behind

Feb 6, 2014, 8:07 PM EST

Colorado tough guy Patrick Bordeleau was tossed from Thursday’s tilt with the Flyers after hitting Philly forward Brayden Schenn from behind:

Bordeleau was given five and a game, a decision that incensed Avs head coach Patrick Roy.

It’s worth noting that Bordeleau has no history with the NHL’s Department of Player Safety. Schenn didn’t appear to be injured — he proceeded to take a power play shift late in the first period — so it’s unclear if Bordeleau’s hit will be reviewed.

    Good for Bordeleau. Hit ‘em harder next time, though.

      Didn’t warrant a major nor misconduct but shutup, it was atleast a minor. Players need to start respecting eachother if player safety will ever be a priority.

        Like the way Emery respected Holtby or Rinaldo respected Roussel?

        How do those events have any bearing on questionable boarding plays? Did I defend what Emery or Rinaldo did? No, I said players need to start respecting eachother, and that includes Flyers players. Get your head out of your a** troll.

      How else is Schenn going to learn not to put himself in a vulnerable position trying to draw a call?

    I don’t think he will have to meet Shanny and company over this. I personally think just a 2 minute boarding call would have been the right call instead of the 5 and GM.

      It looked really bad watching live, but after watching it in slow motion I agree 2 mins should have been the call.

    Bad call, should have been a 2 min.

    Flyers fan here. This is the second time Schenn has been boarded. I think he puts himself in bad positions to draw penalties. The hit versus Washington did not warrant a suspension and don’t think this one warrants one either. Both looked bad live, but definitely do not warrant suspensions. This is at least the 2nd time he got lucky, but he cannot continue to take those type of hits.
