Leafs' Phaneuf Crushes Rangers' Sauer With Huge Hit (w/ video)

During the third period of Monday night's game between the New York Rangers and Toronto Maple Leafs, Leafs' captian Dion Phaneuf leveled Rangers' defenseman Michael Sauer with a huge hit along the boards.  Sauer was pinching down from the point to keep the play alive and try to get the Rangers the tying goal when Phaneuf stepped up and destroyed him.  Sauer did not return to the game and no update is likely on him until tomorrow as the Rangers are off today.  Tough to see Sauer get nailed like that, but a perfectly clean hit by Phaneuf that must be kept in the game.

Here's the video:
