So, the good news: Nylander and Timashov have both scored a goal in the 1st period of the SWE-SUI game.

The bad news: Nylander left the game in the middle of the period after taking a blindside hit to the head. He apparently looked pretty woozy afterward  :'(

He looked dazed getting up and was woozy at the bench.  He walked back to the room ok.  No question it was a concussion.

No point but Timashov sets up the screen on Sweden's 5th goal of the game. Now up 5-1 on the Swiss, looks like they want to make them pay.

This is going to get ugly.  Sweden looks like they want this to turn into a 20 goal game.

He doesn't protect himself but it's a clear headshot to a vulnerable opponent.

And the Swiss with another dirty hit on one of Sweden's top players, this time a check from behind into the boards.

That should have been 5 and a game. It's pretty clear what the Swiss are doing here, and the refs can't just let them get away with it.

And the Swedes score again.

The ref was staring at it too.   Blind incompetent moron.

It was basically Richards-Booth.

With IIHF rules on hitting head I wonder why players ever take the chance on trying to make the big hit?  Seems the risk factor is too large for there to be a reward.  There are already 3 ejections in 5 periods of hockey.

They could try not targeting a players head. They're lucky they're only at 3 ejections.

I disagree, this hit was very close to being a clean one.  Nylander skates with a  low head position which didn't help on that play
