Tollefsen got a minor boarding, and that's fine, nothing more than that. The suspensions came from a minor leg injury on the play
Holtet's boarding penalty was bearly a penalty at all. The danish player turned and bent over at the last second trying to avoid the hit when he saw Holtet coming. No way should that be suspension. The only reason he got injured was his own actions. The dane has been reported to be done for the tournament, and that is sad news, but it still shouldn't be a suspension.
Iím anxious to see if the Danes get any suspensions from the cheap shot in the back of Tollefsen at the end of the game. He followed him around behind the net and cross checked him in the lower back about six feet from the board. Tollefsen went head first into the board. I still canít believe the zebras didnít call anything on the play. The coach said they would report it after the game, so it will be interesting to see what comes from this. If the Norwegian suspensions come from ďplayer safetyĒ, and they donít touch the hit on Tollefsen, then something is seriously wrong.
DahlstrÝm can replace Holtet.
Tollefsen on the other hand cant be replaced.
