Boston Bruins star defenseman Zdeno Chara caused an uproar among hockey fans Tuesday with a brutal hit against Max Pacioretty of the Montreal Canadiens.

The hit left Pacioretty with a concussion and a cracked vertebrae. It was so bad in fact, he had to be carried off the ice on a stretcher. The NHL has reviewed the play and said it will not suspend Chara, but police in Montreal today said they have launched a criminal investigation into the hit.
