Tanev Lays Dangerous Hit on Sissons from Behind

Brandon Tanev tattooes Colton Sissons from behind and a melee ensues during Winnipeg's battle with the Predators in Nashville on Friday night. Tanev appears to be wondering what he did wrong as he heads to the box, but it's pretty clear from the replays that this is a serious boarding infraction. Maybe Tanev didn't expect Sissons to sort of duck away as he's playing the puck, but Tanev has to be a little bit more careful there.

The action of Sissons head against the glass is not what anybody wants to see.

Tanev got the five-minute major and the Predators answered with James Neal's 10th goal to take a 3-1 lead.
