But eventually, the more shots a player takes, the more likely an injury is. And last night was just a culmination of the overall decline in toughness on this team over the last year. Should the entire team have jumped that guy last night? No. Should someone have maybe thought about actually throwing a hit before or after that? Apparently not.
This wasn't a culmination of anything. It was an unfortunate result to a play. Had we beat up Rinaldo and Coutorier against Philly, this play still happens. No doubt in my mind.

Or it shows that they felt the need to dress their best hockey players.
