NEWARK, NJ - JANUARY 22: Benoit Pouliot #57 of the Montreal Canadiens lines up on the wing prior to a faceoff during their NHL game against the New Jersey Devils at the Prudential Center on January 22, 2010 in Newark, New Jersey.

First off, these are hits that need to be removed from the game of hockey. New York Rangers forward Benoit Pouliot saw numbers and shouldn't have hit Montreal Canadiens defenseman Alexei Emelin.All right, but the acting job to sell the penalty was ridiculous, that was worthy of a unsportsmanlike penalty itself. And of course the Canadiens fans wanted a five-minute major on Pouliot. Thoughts?Brutal blindside hit by Benoit Pouliot on Alexei Emelin who headed to the dressing room. He should have been tossed. #GoHabsGo #NYRangers— All Habs (Canadiens) (@All_Habs) May 20, 2014
