BOSTON -- Another Stanley Cup Final game, another dangerous high hit thrown by a St. Louis Blues player.
Blues forward Ivan Barbashev caught Boston Bruins forward Marcus Johansson with a hit early in the first period of Thursday night's Game 5 at TD Garden. No penalty was called on the play.
Check out the hit in the videos below:
Johansson appeared to be a bit shaken up as he remained on the ice for a few extra seconds. He did finish his shift and continued to play as normal thereafter.
Blues forward Oskar Sundqvist was suspended one game for a hit from behind on Bruins defenseman Matt Grzelcyk in Game 2. Grzelcyk left the game right after the hit and hasn't played in the series since.
Should Barbashev be suspended? If the initial point of contact was Johansson's head, then a ban certainly is warranted.
