The biggest hit from Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals was an accident. Milan Lucic skated across the blue line, completely unaware that Jaromir Jagr was about to cut and head his direction. The two Bruins had a huge collision which sent both men sprawling. To make matters worse, Chicago's Brandon Saad was unable to avoid the traffic jam and ran into the back of Lucic. The result was an odd, yet strangely hilarious, three-man pileup.
What a hit. If Lucic's hit was on an opponent you might hear cries for some sort of discipline due to his arm being elevated. Instead, Jagr was on the receiving end of an unexpected punch to the face courtesy of his teammate.
Thanks to Josh Gold-Smith for this lovely (and painful) GIF.
