Didn't even need to start a #FreeMcQuaid meme this time. Looks like Adam McQuaid is going free, much to the dismay of NHL fans everywhere, probably.
Not gonna lie. When we saw that hit we instantly though "Well, McQuaid just cleared Chara medically healthy enough to play on Saturday." We're surprised there's no hearing. Those knee-on-knee hits are bad.
But we agree with the above tweet -- it was more reactionary than meaningful. He got beat and he thought "Shit. Gotta stop him somehow."
Here's McQuaid and Marchand's reaction post-game.
Other reason for Quaider not being suspended:
- His hair is just too fabulous not to have on the ice
- He used his Jedi mind trick. "You will not suspend me."
- ZOMG! THE NHL CLEARLY FAVORS THE BOSTON BRUINS FOR NO APPARENT REASON. ZOMG!!!!FD IT"S A CONSPIRACY!!!!!!#!@
