Looks to me like he tried to do a cute move and got caught doing so.

2 minute penalty to Getzlaf for sure.

2 min to Mikus, diving penalty? :amazed:

He went to hit him, he moved last second, thats why it was knee on knee...Had Mikus took the hit like a man, he wouldn't have, firstly, gotten "injured" and secondly it would be 2 or less...

Whatever..

Didn't look too good.

No, Mikus didn't dive. He tried to avoid Getzlaf, which exacerbated the hit, but Getzlaf still caught him with a knee.

Not only was it a stupid move with no respect for your opponent, it was also a total lack of respect against your own team. Take a penalty in the late third, at the position on the ice is just so dumb.

saint2e 05-17-2012 08:10 AM

It was reactionary to the hit that the Slovakia player just gave to Kane. I could feel it coming, almost.

Henkka 05-17-2012 08:27 AM

Quite a surprise who is in the penalty box when the tournament ending GWG is scored.

Way to go Getzlaf. More drinking and women and leading example. When your concentration is not 100%, this kind of things happen.

It takes some talent to spoil the Anaheim season first, then Canada WHC tournament in a row.

You are my hero.

This is closer to the truth:
He went to hit him, he moved last second, Getzlaf adjusts to make sure he catches him and thats why it was knee on knee...Had Getlaf accepted he missed his opponent, he wouldn't have, firstly, gotten "a major" and secondly he would have had a chance to win.

Before you start calling me a liar, just look at the posted youtube video at the 0:55-1:00 mark. Mikus dekes Getzlaf and there's no way after that Getzlaf can hit Mikus on his body. Stupid hit and dangerous hit.

Ow, and besides. What difference does it make if its a 5 or a 2? Its still a 5-on-3 and its still 5 on 4 for pretty much the rest of the game.

It was definitely a penalty. The contact was clearly knee-on-knee and I don't think Mikus did anything to create the contact, as has been suggested. You can debate whether it should have been 2 minutes or 5 minutes, sure. But it was definitely a penalty.

What a terrible way to go out. That's why I hate these single-elimination tournaments. You could have a great tournament for 6 games and all of a sudden you have one bad moment and you're out.

Trotzig 05-17-2012 08:52 AM

It's a penalty, I think his intentions where "clean" but it's a very poor execution of the hit from Getzlaf. Nevertheless, it's dirty and reckless regardless of his intentions.

I can definitely see a a major under the IIHF rules.

It's part of the thrill :)

Getzlaf had no need to go for a big hit at such a decisive moment, he could've easily aborted mission. Really stupid move, especially being team captain.

His reaction reminds me of this

At least Riberio got back up this kid was still acting like he was portraying the death scene of a character in a bollywood film. They'd probably hire him in a heartbeat.

Random Oracle 05-17-2012 09:15 AM

The Slovak player was still in pain and down on the ground after he had gotten off the ice. Just acting, right?

crazycanuck 05-17-2012 09:16 AM

Poorly executed hit by Getzlaf there. Didn't look like a Marchment intent to injure knee on knee hit.

Jocke 05-17-2012 09:24 AM

Unfortunate hit. Should have been a 2.

People calling it diving :facepalm:

Drake1588 05-17-2012 09:30 AM

It's hard to make windows into men's souls where injuries are concerned. Don't know Mikus' history, and you just can't tell if someone is injured or not from the outside.

Yet there is no question that this was a terrible play by Getzlaf, who put his leg right out there in a classic knee-on-knee pose, locking his leg. It was an awful time of the game to do it. Lack of poise and absolutely a major, to these eyes. Intent to injure isn't the important factor.

As for Mikus, I don't hope he's injured, but I do hope he wasn't just embellishing the play either. It certainly looked like a bad injury. Hopefully he can come back and play in the SF. It looks like it could be a serious ACL/MCL injury.

slovakiasnextone 05-17-2012 09:31 AM

Lol, right Mikúš was diving. And I guess he went to the hospital just because he wanted to say hi to the Finnish nurses :facepalm:

I don't think he was faking it but there is no need for a grown man to do a couple extra barrel rolls and go into the fetal position and do the sideways worm.

BruinsBtn 05-17-2012 10:03 AM

Should have only been 2 but Getzlaf is an idiot for throwing that hit.

2 becomes 5 automatically when there's an injury per IIHF rules.
