Johnny Boychuk knows how to deliver a good, clean body check. Just Steven Stamkos or Simon Gagne. Or Matt Stajan. Or any other players on a growing list of victims of Boychuk body checks. The Bruins defenseman explained to NESN.com Bruins reporter Douglas Flynn that delivering a big-time hit doesn't just hit by accident. Like many other things in sports, delivering a big hit is something of a science. See the video above to hear Boychuk explain that science.
