He also didn't get outmuscled on the other play, he was caught flat footed and was knocked down by sort of a cheapshot, so he marginally grabbed the other guys stick and gets called (there's reason to be upset there, the ref could have called the other guy for charging, but didn't). I could easily pick apart the other two 2nd liners games from last night too. It seems you have much too much criticism of just one player.
Charging? Please stop making up excuses. Clowe has bad skating posture and they guy had leverage and bowled him over. He clearly grabbed his stick, not "marginally". He tripped a guy when he got a tripping penalty. He crosschecked Ballard in the back of the head because he was skating away from Clowe cause he took a bad angle, because of his poor skating. I'm all for passion, but take the passion out on the ICE and play hockey with that passion. What's the point of banging your stick against the penalty box glass repeatedly? The ONLY thing positive Clowe is bringing to this team right now is his ability to fight and protect Couture, which was necessary in the Vancouver game because they started going after Couture when they got down 2-0.
