This is Darcy Tucker's infamous low hit on Michael Peca during the Leafs/Islanders first round series in 2002.

Peca missed several months with a torn knee ligament and swore revenge in the media. However, the two made up years later when Peca signed with the Leafs and went on to become friends.

There was no penalty on the play.

Maple Laughs homer commentators defending a dangerous hit. Tucker, a coward in same mold as Dale Hunter: ran away when it got too hot.

This was a dirty hit but it was karma for us Islanders fan who would defend Kasparaitis' low hits.
This was a mean and nasty series. I'm a Rangers fan, but totally got caught up in this. One of the final years that the players were allowed to police themselves. I don't recognize this McDonald's franchise version of the NHL we see today.
Somewhere, Matt Cooke is proud.

well... i mean... you can see him changing his inclination significantly moments before the hit. It's not kosher

In 2002, this was not a dirty hit.
Hockey today seems so aseptic compared to what it was 10 plus years ago.
Tucker was quite the fucker
