Dangerous Liaisons

Terrier sophomore Joe Pereira just got plowed head/shoulder-first into the boards low to Hoyle’s right by junior defenseman Ian Tallett. The play looked awful in real-time, the contact itself looked punishable, and yet the stripes pocketed their whistles.

Human error is what it is, but when there is such a universal outcry against hits to the head at all levels of the game, how can the officials let such a play occur? Call ’em all and apologize later, is my opinion when it comes to cranial concerns. But apparently that’s just me.
