Are there any clips of anybody getting called for high-sticking an opponent who is laying on the ice? If there are, I would love to see them.
Ding, Ding, Ding...we have a winner!
At least Michalek's wasn't intentional! Unlike the can-opener trip that the Lightning defenseman put on Kovalev just before he scored.
.....but our goggles prevent us from remember or seeing that one right?
It should be a good game tonight if Boucher can make the proper adjustments.
