Milbury has obviously been watching too much NFL this year and got confused!

I can't imagine Methot was going for knees... especially since the initial point of contact was seemingly the thigh area, and at that speed as well, half facing the play! You cannot exactly target with your ass in hockey pants either... if you do hit the knees you are going to hit most of the guys upper leg and some midsection at the same time.

Not like an elbow or shoulder which can ofc easily target a head and be almost the only point of contact.
