Another night, another controversial hit in an NHL playoff game.
Tuesday's victim was Marian Hossa, who received a high, late hit from a leaping Raffi Torres. Hossa left the arena in an ambulance shortly after the hit, which can be seen below. There was no penalty on the play but Blackhawk Brandon Bollig was pegged with a double minor for roughing and a 10-minute misconduct for going after Torres.
Torres was fined $2,500 in December for elbowing Jan Hejda. He was suspended three days later for two games after charging Nate Prosser. Not to be forgotten, he was also banned for the final two regular season games and two playoff games for elbowing Jordan Eberle in the head.
