Pittsburgh Penguins forward Brandon Tanev had a huge hit during a Tuesday night win over the Islanders.

During the first period of the 2-1 playoff win, Tanev dropped New York Islanders player Brock Nelson with an awesome hit. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Nelson was literally sent airborne from the hit. Watch the awesome hockey moment below.

My friends, that’s simply an incredible hockey hit, and there’s no other way to put it. Add in the fact it happened in the playoff and it’s a little extra special.

It’s also a great reminder that you have to keep your head on a swivel at all times in the NHL. If you don’t, Tanev might take it off.

There’s seriously nothing like a great hit in the NHL. There was nothing dirty about this hit from Tanev.

He saw his window of opportunity and took it to drop Nelson.

Hopefully, fans get several more hits like this down the stretch as teams battle it out for the Stanley Cup! I can’t wait!
