Jonathan Drouin got lit up on the best hit of the NHL playoffs

New, comments

The Lightning forward won't make this mistake again.

Young Lightning forward Jonathan Drouin just learned what happens when you don't keep your head up in the neutral zone.

Spoiler alert: he got absolutely wrecked by Eric Fehr.

Before you cry foul, it's a clean hit. The contact is shoulder-to-shoulder, and though Drouin's backlash looks violent it's a clean, by-the-letters hit. Probably the best we've seen so far this postseason, honestly.

Pierre McGuire's cringe in the background is the only proper way to react to this hit.
