Happy 10th Anniversary



May 10th, 2002 was a day that will live in Sens history. Many fans know it as "the hit", when Daniel Alfredsson hit Darcy Tucker and then scored the game winning goal. Many Leaf fans will argue it was from behind, as do the pro Leaf announcers in the clip, but I think it's a lot closer to shoulder to shoulder than many would like to believe. Today marks the 10th anniversary of that hit.  Enjoy!

Thoughts?

Nice post! A good memory.

To me "hitting from behind" is hitting an unaware opponent in the numbers.... Tucker looked back and saw him coming so he wasn't unaware, and the hit was to the back of his shoulder, not the numbers. This kinda thing happens all the time.

I must have missed Tucker's funeral though... or, wait, did he somehow recover?
