After McNabb hit Schmaltz hard along the boards, Hartman slashed McNabb and tackled him to the ice. Hartman also received a double minor for roughing and slashing.
Hartman has been very good at avoiding penalties like this, however, he wasn’t going to let McNabb get away with a big hit on Schmaltz. Hartman could have handled it a different way, it’s already been handled by the NHL and hopefully both players can move on.
The Blackhawks will be back at it against the Nashville Predators on Friday night.
