Sarich Delivers Hit of the Year

Yeah, that is high praise but I have reasoning. First off, take a look at the hit that the whole hockey world is, or at least should be talking about.

Obviously, if you been a hockey fan of any kind, you seen hits like this many of times. Guy skating up the ice, head is down, and a D-man just steps up and lays his shoulder into him. What makes this hit, the hit of the year in my opinion, is the timing.

The Flames were down 3-0 in a pivitol Game Three, had no mojo whatsoever, and the Sea of Red might as well of been sitting in a library they were so quiet. Then it happened. Sarich freaking nails Marleau, which incites a scrum and gets the crowd to their feet. Also, Calgary managed to get a power-play out of the ordeal leading to their first goal.

The Flames came back to win when it all looked so glim, and this win will propel them to win the series… and all because of this huge hit by Sarich. He may have single-handedly changed the Flames entire play-off fortunes.

P.S. Mad, MAD props to Marleau for getting right up and getting in the scrum. That’s leadership baby, and that’s playing the game!
