Matthew Tkachuk is once again finding himself surrounded by controvery after a horrible dirty play that he did earlier this week in a game against the Boston Bruins.

On Tuesday night, the Boston Bruins and the Florida Panthers fought for the first spot in the Atlantic Division. Boston ended up winning 4-3 in an intense matchup that saw Matthew Tkachuk making one of the dirtiest move we've seen this season.

Tkachuk makes one of the dirtiest move this season against the Boston Bruins

Florida Panthers' Matthew Tkachuk is known to play a physical and agressive game, but it reached a whole new level against the Bruins. He made one of the most controversial play of the season so far.
During the first period, he fell on the ice and slid towards Bruins' Parker Wotherspoon, skates first. He looked at him before raising his skate, in what looks like a serious attempt to injure.
Watch the video here:
"Matthew Tkachuk tries to kick out at Parker Wotherspoon with his skate blade. No call on the Panthers forward, and the Bruins end up shorthanded"

Considering that injuries from skate-related incident has been widely discussed this season, and preventive measures were taken by Leagues all over the world, it's disgusting to see one of the best players in the NHL do such a thing.
Things often get more physical during crucial games like this one. However, it's not a reason to play with the intention of hurting the oppoent. Tkachuk may not have had these intentions, but without an explanation from him, it's hard to see that he wanted to avoid the contact.
Do you think Tkachuk should have faced consequences for this dirty play?
