Found March 24, 2013 on Diehardsport:
New Jersey Devils’ Tim Sestito was chasing after a loose puck when Florida Panthers’ Colby Robak delivered this gruesome cross-check to his back.  Sestito was too close to the boards to stop his momentum and so when he was knocked off balance, he went shoulder first into the boards.  Luckily Sestito was able to get his head out of the way or he could have been more seriously hurt. This is exactly the kind of garbage hit that the NHL is trying to get rid of and Robak should know better than to do something cheap like this.  Robak received a five-minute major and a game misconduct on the play and will definitely be getting a suspension from Brendan Shanahan.  This is almost identical to the hit that got Patrick Kaleta a four-game suspension a few weeks ago.
