I'm the biggest supporter of physical, tough hockey, but how can anyone seriously defend that play?
Regardless of what we all think should be in the rules, the bottom line is its against the rules to hit a goalie in hockey. The grow up getting hit with pucks, not learning how to take a hit and their equipment is not designed to take a hit at all. Their helmets fall off from shots, so god knows what a 230 lb physical freak of nature like Lucic could do.
He blatantly hit him, threw his hands up and everything didnt even attempt to move.
I would love Lucic on Detroit but he is a huge meathead and this is a clear example.
100% agree. Goalie equipment isn't supposed to absorb hits. Lucic was probably pissed for not being able to handle an easy pass and took it out on Miller.
