yea, for real, i wanna see it.
here is the hit but they don't show any of the scrum... There wasn't really much to the fight. Petro was skating by Ott and Ott went after him expecting a fight. Petro didn't really do much.
That actually looks pretty clean to me. The rule of thumb is two strides, and Ott was already closing that when Coliacovo got rid of the puck. Whether the hit was too low or whatever is a different argument but this wasn't a late hit. Let 'em play.
The problem with the hit... the first contact by Ott is skate-on-skate. That's tripping, not a clean hip check. Ott leads with his skate.
Freeze that video at 13 seconds. It's pretty doggone blatant.
