Colorado announcers say Kronwall got "some of his own medicine" after dirty hit

Detroit Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall has earned a reputation around the National Hockey League for being a physical player who makes bone-crushing hits on his opponents. These kinds of hits have even been given a name -- being "Kronwalled." During Thursday night's game against the Colorado Avalanche, Kronwall was playing a puck in the corner when Avalanche...

Avs announcer enjoyed Cody McLeod hit on Kronwall

So you think you despise Hawk Harrelson? Well you might want to add Colorado Avalanche play-by-play man Mike Haynes to the list of opposing announcers you flat out detest. Yeah I know Colorado has been about as relevant in the hockey world as some beer league rec team in Taylor but last night when Avalanche winger Cody McLeod delivered a nasty and cheap hit to Niklas Kronwall, Haynes...

In Swedish, Niklas Kronwall calls the Cody McLeod hit ‘needless’ but blames himself

From RedWingsFeed... Kronwall speaks. RT @[us]: Svenskstjärnan utburen på bår http://t.co/qg0RFnH84N via @Aftonbladet #RedWings — Red Wings News Feed (@RedWingsFeed) October 18, 2013 Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall discussed the hit that sent him off on a stretcher during the Red Wings' 4-2 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday evening, speaking...

Kronwall taken off ice on stretcher

The Detroit Red Wings beat the Colorado Avalanche 4-2 on Thursday night, handing Patrick Roy his first loss as an NHL head coach. But the only thing players and coaches alike could talk about after the game was the latest vicious hit to the head that sent a player off the ice on a stretcher. This time it was Detroit defenseman Niklas Kronwall, who was carried off the ice on a stretcher...

Cody McLeod boards Niklas Kronwall, Kronwall leaves on stretcher, concussed

Updated 4x: Kronwall has a concussion but will not be hospitalized, has feeling and movement in extremities: Colorado Avalanche winger Cody McLeod roared in on the forecheck and smacked Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall's neck into the dasher boards. Piece of **** got 5 and a game (offset by 2-minute "roughing" penalty to Ericsson) but Kronwall was stretchered off...

Niklas Kronwall gets crushed from behind on dirty hit from Cody McLeod

Colorado Avalanche forward Cody McLeod utterly destroyed Detroit Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall from behind on this brutally illegal hit.  Kronwall was clearly concussed and was taken off on a stretcher, but is apparently doing okay.  McLeod will be suspended for his hit and deservedly so.  One of the most disgusting parts of this video is the way the Altitude announcers...

Red Wings-Avs quick take: Wings snap Avs’ streak…And cross their fingers for Kronwall

Thanks to an unnecessary and reckless hit, the Detroit Red Wings played without a concussed-but-okay Niklas Kronwall for the vast majority of what I certainly hope was a team-defining 4-2 win over the Colorado Avalanche. The game had all the hallmarks of a Wings-Avs game: a fight, a stupid, stupid, stupid hit by Cody McLeod yielding a bizarre, "Okay, yeah, he hit the dude...

Cody McLeod Injures Niklas Kronwall Via The Ol’ Hit From Behind

Earlier today we talked about how the Avalanche and Red Wings had a legitimate shot at reigniting their once-fierce rivalry. We touched on how Patrick Roy has the Avalanche playing a hard-nosed (to put it very, very lightly) style of play which has seen them win their first six games of the year. While the Avalanche style of play is an exciting brand, it was just a matter of time...

Red Wings-Avalanche wrap-up and overnight report: on the McLeod-Kronwall hit and the Wings’ win

Blogger's note: This entry is going to piss you off if you're a Red Wings fan. The Red Wings took a very late flight to Phoenix with a player who insists that he was at fault for getting hit from behind by Cody McLeod in a concussed Niklas Kronwall, and the Red Wings brought Kronwall along having defeated the Colorado Avalanche 4-2. The Red Wings both ensured that the...

Cody McLeod knocks out Niklas Kronwall with dirty hit

Not Quite The Dirtiest Hockey Hit Ever, But...

Another day, another player stretchered off the ice in the NHL

Is it just me, or does it seem like the number of extremely dirty hits are at an all-time high in the NHL? Just a few days after we witnessed an unconscious Dan Boyle get stretchered off the ice there was a similar incident in Colorado. This time the perpetrator was Cody McCleod who drove Niklas Kronwall’s head into the boards as the Red Wings defenseman had his back to the Avalanche...
