VIDEO: Brenden Morrow’s hit on Anze Kopitar

At the 12:12 mark of the third period – with the LA Kings leading by a goal – Stars’ captain Brenden Morrow put a hit on Anze Kopitar as he was trying to come from behind the net and possibly wrap around the goaltender.

Kopitar did not return to the game, due to something coach Darryl Sutter described as ‘a bloody nose’ during his post game presser. Mike Richards went after Morrow and ended up receiving enough penalties to put the Stars on a four minute power play. Dallas scored, ruining the Kings extended penalty kill success of late. And, more importantly, it was the goal they needed to push the game into overtime.

The question of the hour is was the hit legal? Take a look…
