Video: Brown shakes off boarding hit by Brassard

Jun 4, 2014, 9:56 PM EDT

The New York Rangers and Los Angles Kings are already generating some disdain for each other early on in the 2014 Stanley Cup Final. Anton Stralman really dialed up Kyle Clifford in the second period while Derick Brassard received a two-minute boarding minor for this hit on Dustin Brown:

Brown, 29, returned to action during the second period. It’s not necessarily safe to say that he totally avoided injury because it’s common for players to fight through pain during this time of year, yet he’s at least healthy enough to play.

Brassard, 26, hasn’t been suspended during his NHL career.

The Kings weren’t able to score on the ensuing power play after this hit, yet Drew Doughty‘s 2-2 tally leaves these two teams locked up as the aggression heightens.

    How many snaps do you give Brassards head snap back that drew a high sticking call ? I give him 4 snaps !

      It’d be one thing if the stick never made contact, but there was definitely a penalty. I didn’t bother looking at it again to see if he was embellishing it or not, but it doesn’t matter since Richards definitely had the stick up. Just got to kill the penalty and then come out and win the third, and recognize that the reason the Kings and Rangers are here and certain other teams aren’t is that they don’t stop playing when they don’t get the call they want, and don’t make excuses.

        He threw his head back did a perorete then tried to corkscrew himself into the ice

      On a scale from 1 to Tomas Plekanec, I’d give him about an 8.9

      See what happens when you troll.

      I suppose the embellishment will stop when the playoffs end. Right?

      Also the Canadians have been eliminated. So no embellishments.As I click post my head snapped back in memory of the Habs…

        All players snap their head back when they get hit in the face. Every single one of them. Its part reflex, and partly to sell the call.

        Now the difference with Montreal is that on multiple occasions their players, one in particular, snapped their head back when they were never actually hit with a stick. I’m sure that’s what bleedrangerblue was talking about.

      • joey4id - Jun 4, 2014 at 11:26 PM

        And the Montreal was penalized, and the Rangers scored. That was sweet.

    The Habs series rubbed off on Brassard

  5. jr507 - Jun 4, 2014 at 10:07 PM
