I think so too. Right before the skate contact, Tkackuk is in full control, upright. Then his right skate lifts off the ice, and his left skate starts to slide. Its like he is going in with intent.
He does a little hop like that and then the right leg skate lifts again like a dagger.
Fck sakes this is playoffs, he was going hard to take the man, Schiefle saw & shifted to avoid him causing a less than one second reaction from Tkachuk whose mindset was to take the man on the boards & finish check. Intent to injure? Seriously? Stupid narrative, stuff happens at high speed of the game. Maurice is just trying to get his team fired up, maybe get some ref sympathy, good for him. Hope Scheifle is ok.
