Intentionally or not, Paille totally headbutts him in the face. Malkin's wearing a visor and he still can't get away from it, and I think that the league would be worried about stuff like that becoming widespread if anyone could wear them (obviously not if EVERYBODY wore them!)

What's kind of interesting is that in the video he's wearing a cage, not a full shield. It seems like most NHL players go that route. I wonder why that is, instead of the full shield? You'd think that'd be more familiar, since they normally wear visors? I've never worn a full shield, but I always assumed it'd give better vision than the cage I currently sport.
