Hockey is a rough game kids. If you don't like physical play, then you should go watch figure skating or something.
Malkin plays the game hard and he'll catch you if your head is down. This is exactly what happened. Simmons wasn't paying attention and Malkin made him pay the price.
Whether there is 10 seconds left or 10 minutes left in the game, Geno Malkin is still gonna play the game hard. Gimme a break guys..
It is a rough game. But the only thing Malkin could hit was Simmonds head. The dude wasn't in position to hit him shoulder to shoulder but he hits the only thing he can come in contact with which was his head. The league is trying to rid the game of these headshots.
elbow to head but it was unintentional, clean hit, no ill-internt here, simmons's fault, similar to sutter getting nailed by weight except obviously not as huge
this is malkn being dirty:
Then after the play when the Kings realized what just happend, EM bee-lined it to the locker room as quickly as possible. Didn't want to stick around and answer for himself.
Hahaha, are you just using stock phrases? Malkin was on the ice in the middle of it until a teammate literally pulled him toward the tunnel.
Also, with 14 seconds to the game, what on God's green earth was Simmonds charging headlong into the play for? Malkin had him beat to the puck and Simmonds comes flying in with his head down. Malkin's body doesn't even move.
not saying its suspension worthy, but its still a ***** move.
up 4-1 10 seconds left and a player is coming if for a stick check you dish the puck and cold shoulder im to the head. completely unnecessary
[Note that Simmonds' head is a full foot and change lower than where it should be.]
It doesn't matter. The point is there is 14 seconds left. The game is out of reach and he hits the guy in his head. That was the only part of Simmonds body that he could come in contact with. It was unnecessary.
