Adam Johnson is hit by Korbinian Holzer on Thursday. -- MATT SUNDAY / DKPS

Ducks defenseman Korbinian Holzer laid this questionable hit on Penguins forward Adam Johnson on Thursday at PPG Paints Arena:

Holzer most likely should have received a boarding penalty for the hit, but there was no call on the play.

Johnson was slow to get up and went down the Penguins' tunnel with a trainer after the hit. He returned after a few minutes in the Penguins' locker room.

Teddy Blueger stepped in and dropped the gloves with Holzer after the hit:

In addition to the five-minute major for fighting, Blueger received a two-minute minor for instigating, and a 10-minute misconduct, leaving the Penguins short a forward yet again for the time being.
