Everything had to go wrong (from a Flyer perspective) for a clean, devastating hit like that to happen. Niko Dimitrakos led Umberger into a bad situation (ala Brian Griese to Ed McCaffrey on 9/10/01) with that little breakout pass, Umberger kept his head down a split second too long, and Brian Cambell read the play and was in perfect position to lay R.J. out.
It was a great hit, but I never like seeing players look like Umberger did after the fact.
Bingo. At first you get excited by the hit...but then when you see that the kid is in Oz you just hope he'll be alright.
