The Stanley Cup Final between the Boston Bruins and the St. Louis Blues has been a heavy-hitting affair. In the first period of Game Three, it was a hit that didn’t happen that was the most sensational.
Blues forward Brayden Schenn came across center ice to hit Bruins forward David Pastrnak who had the puck. Pastrnak ducked out of the way, and Schenn did a complete flip in midair and landed right on his derriere.
The hit, had it landed, could have been a dangerous one given Schenn’s speed and trajectory at the time.
Schenn bounced on his bum pretty hard on the landing but didn’t miss any playing time.
The Capitals’ Tom Wilson has had his fair share of run-ins with Brayden and his brother, Luke–an infamous family feud, if you will. One of Wilson’s fights with Brayden in 2013 produced the greatest photo ever of a Tom Wilson punch.
