It was the hit heard around the world.
You probably remember where you were when Torey Krug barreled into Rob Thomas during the Boston Bruins’ 2019 Stanley Cup Final Game 1 against the St. Louis Blues.
Krug was asked about the infamous hit Friday during a video interview.
“To be honest, that was my matchup the whole series, Krug said, via the Blues. “And going toe-to-toe with that (David Perron) was a battle. We had our fair-share of battles. I was chasing him up ice. I was going after him and then I saw he was changing and I feel bad for Rob there. The situation presented itself and that’s what happened.”
Thomas then joined in on the call and was asked if he thought it was a clean hit.
“Yeah. I mean I think it was fine,” he said. “I don’t think there was anything wrong with it. It’s playoff hockey.”
It was a pretty awesome interaction. Check out the full clip below:
Nice to see these two getting along.
