During a shift in the second period, there were two huge bodychecks. Both were clean, completely legal, and huge.
They both involved TJ Oshie.
First, Oshie layed out Cedric Paquette with a teeth-rattling bodycheck.
Oshie buried his left shoulder into Paquette’s chest, sending the Lightning forward tumbling to the ice.
Here’s another look.
Seconds later, Chris Kunitz caught Oshie with his head down while stick-handling in the offensive zone.
Hockey. It’s brutal and beautiful all at the same time.
