Just cause somebody gets hurt doesn’t make it a dirty hit… the puck was there, he didn’t hit his head… what more do you want?
That was an extremely dirty hit. Adams went for Alfredsson first (to the head) then went after the puck.
He purposely went out of his way to take out Alfredsson. I’m sure he did not mean to hurt him or maybe even expected Alfredsson to see him coming, but he did not go after the puck, which makes it dirty.
We can argue all day about intent or the fact that Alfredsson saw it coming, but Adams did not perform a hockey play first. He went for the hit.
Watch that angle then try and tell me it was dirty…. The puck was right there, and he didn’t even hit his head, it was all shoulder… Hockey is a physical game, you see a guy who can score around the puck and you knock him off it…
