Hockey is a violent sport. We all get that. It is part of what we sign up for when we watch just like the violent collisions in the NFL. However, watch this video and tell me this is not dirty:

There was nothing Marion Hossa could really do when Raffi Torres left his feet to launch himself at Hossa. These playoffs have seemed especially brutal with multiple incidents like this with minimal action taken by the league.

On the flip side, ratings for the Stanley Cup playoffs are up. I just hope the NHL can keep the players protected from cheap shots like this so we still have hockey to watch.

**UPDATE** The Chicago Tribune is reporting Marion Hossa left Northwestern Memorial Hospital at 10pm on his own. Good news.
