Talbot dazed by Staios hit

During the Flyers 3-2 win in New York, their 23rd in the last 24 by the way, Max Talbot took a forearm to the head on a blindside hit by Steve Staios.

No penalty was called on the play, but Talbot stayed down on the ice after struggling to get up. After a couple minutes he returned to the bench and took another shift or two, even getting an assist on a goal by Sean Couturier.

However, after the game, Max was annoyed with the hit,and didn't seem himself after the game.

In the video below, he talks about Sergei Bobrovsky some, but when I finally ask him the question about the hit, you can see it's bothering him and he's still feeling the affects.

I wouldn't be surprised if Max is held out of the game in Nashville after trainers have a good chance to evaluate him tomorrow.

I'm really surprised there was not even a minor penalty or even a scrum ensuing from the play (maybe because it was a close game and retaliation would change the Isles equalizing the game). In the BOS/MTL game..PK Subban absolutely crushed David Krecji and chaos followed and it looked like a clean hit! Subban was given 2 for elbowing. Inconsistent calls around the league are going to really leave players wondering!

I hope that something can be done. I know that it is part of the game but at least he should be penalized.
