Detroit Red Wings winger Teemu Pulkkinen was forced out of Thursdays game against the Arizona in the first period following a dangerous hit from Coyotes center Martin Hanzal.Following a Coyotes turnover in their defensive zone, Pulkkinen was chasing down a loose puck into the left wing corner with Hanzal giving chase. As Pulkkinen went to pick up the puck, Hanzals stick made contact with Pulkkinens skate, causing the Red Wings sophomore to lose his balance. Hanzal then went to throw a hit as Pulkkinen William Hayes Jersey fell, causing him to crash awkwardly into the boards:Considering the size difference, its no wonder the hit rattled Pulkkinen as much as it did. The 5-foot-11, 183-pound winger Leonte Carroo Jersey gives up more than six inches and 40 pounds to Hanzal. Pulkkinen headed for the dre sing room immediately upon returning to the bench and was ruled out for the remainder of the contest shortly thereafter. For his part in the play, Hanzal was handed a minor penalty for boarding.Its hard to say if any supplemental discipline will be coming to Hanzal. He did poke Pulkkinens skates out from under him, which was easily worth a tripping call, and that put Pulkkinen in a vulnerable position. Hanzal finished the check with Pulkkinen falling, and the boarding call was warranted, but its hard to Larry Csonka Jersey say whether theres enough here to make it a suspendable play.
