I think our blowout win of Washington, he took a slash to his hand right after a goal and it seemed to be bothering him for awhile after. Wonder if that was it.

Either way, I don't get the hate for Downie. If he's not pulling max effort? I get it then. But the guy was one of the catalysts for turning our season around. Aside from Volpatti beating the snot out of him in his 1st game back, he came back and sparked Couturier and Read...and the 3 of them really led the turn around. He deserves more props than he gets.
