I was at the game at the Forum when Mark Tinordi broke his leg going back to get the icing call. For those of you who play rec hockey it's probably the scariest routine play you do. You're at full speed and you can only turn so sharp at that speed. I can only imagine having Darcy Tucker on my shoulder. I don't like the no touch icing but this play seems like a problem for the NHL. On the one hand it looked as though Greene lost his edge. On the other he probably lost his edge because Tucker was on his shoulder. Terry Murray demands his dman gets that icing call while Joe Sacco demands Tucker get to the puck before Greene. If Tucker just sort of lets up on Greene what do you think Sacco will do to his ice time as a result? And where would the Kings be if Greene had caught his leg under him and broke it over an icing call?
