Brooks Orpik destroys Loui Eriksson with open ice hit

ORPIKERIKSSON HIT SLO MO TNB

Brooks Orpik laid this devastating hit on Bruins forward Loui Eriksson early during the first period of Saturday’s Penguins-Bruins game in Boston. The hit looked to catch Eriksson a bit high and was enough to keep him out for the rest of the game, but the play was not called for a penalty. That would be a huge reason behind why Orpik was attacked and stretchered off the ice just a few minutes later.
