Video: Patrick Elias hit into stanchion

The Devils lost Patrick Elias, Adam Henrique and Jacob Josefson to injuries when they took on the Capitals on Friday night. The most cringe-worthy of the bunch had to be Elias’ as he was hit into one of the stanchions separating the benches by Washington’s Tom Wilson. The stanchions are now padded after a few scary incidents over the past few years, but this is still a tough video to watch.

Tom Wilson: ‘When you hit a guy hard and clean, you’ve got to be ready’ to fight

Right or wrong, hockey has always had its own brand of on-ice justice where players are made to answer for slights both real and perceived by being challenged to a fight. It’s an enduring part of the NHL, and the ability for players to stand up for teammates is part of the reason many believe fisticuffs always will have a place in the game. That doesn’t mean it’s not odd to...
