Niklas Kronwall levels Kyle Palmieri with center ice hit

About 13 minutes into the first period of game four of the Anaheim Ducks-Detroit Red Wings 1st round playoff series, Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall was up to his old tricks.  Kronwall caught Ducks forward Kyle Palmieri with his head down in the neutral zone and “Kronwalled” him.  The hit was a 100% legal hit and no penalty was called.  Kronwall does a great job of leading with his hip/back and never targeting the head; more players should learn to hit like he does.
