Brayden McNabb destroys Nick Suzuki with monster open ice hit

Brayden McNabb destroys Nick Suzuki, Canadiens vs Golden Knights, Game 3 NHL WCF, 6/18/2021

Vegas Golden Knights defenseman Brayden McNabb obliterated Montreal Canadiens center Nick Suzuki with a tremendous open ice hit during Friday night's Game 3 of the NHL Western Conference Finals at the T-Mobile Arena. 

It happened during the opening moments of the second period with the game still scoreless. Suzuki took a pass and skated towards the red line with the puck as McNabb lined him up and laid him out.
   

It was a clean hit. Suzuki appeared to be OK as he got right back up, found his stick, and continued playing. 

Suzuki's teammate Shea Weber retaliated on his behalf by knocking McNabb down to the ice in front of the referees. Since the hit happened nowhere near the puck, Weber was given a two minute penalty for interference. 

Suzuki and Weber got the last laugh, however, as the Canadiens beat the Golden Knights 3-2 to take a 2-1 series lead.
