What are your favourite big hits the Habs have laid out lately?

Claus Andersen

With NHL14's new physics engine for hitting getting major attention, they've asked us to write about the thrill of the big hit.

My memory for big hits isn't the best, but there are a few that stick out for me. What makes a big hit worth remembering? I think that depends on the person, but for me the power of the hit matters a lot, but so does who's getting hit. So here are my favourite hits of the last couple years:

5. Jarred Tinordi on Patrick Dwyer


4. Alexei Emelin on Eric Gryba


3. P.K. Subban on Chris Neil


2. Alexei Emelin on Joe Pavelski


1. P.K. Subban on Brad Marchand


What are yours?
