Krug will not be disciplined for hit on Shaw
There will be no discipline for Bruins defenseman Torey Krug, who caught Canadiens forward Andrew Shaw with a big hit last night in Montreal.
According to Sportsnet’s Chris Johnston, the league felt that Shaw made head contact unavoidable by putting himself in a vulnerable position prior to the hit.
Not surprisingly, the Bruins thought it was a good hit, and the Canadiens didn’t like it so much.
Shaw was able to return to the game and finished with 16:37 of ice time in the 2-1 overtime victory for Boston.
Feeling is that Shaw put himself in a vulnerable position. Made head contact unavoidable on what otherwise would have been a full bodycheck.— Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) December 13, 2016
