He left the puck and went for the head. Can you imagine if Tootoo or Cooke did this? People would be screaming bloody murder

There was no need for it? They play until the buzzer.

There was no need for the Kings player to have his head down.

/oh wait, you are right, you used larger font.

Simmonds ran his head into Malkin's elbow. Not the other way around.

If Wayne skates with his head up, nothing happens. The puck had just left Simmonds a fraction of a second earlier.

Maybe it's just homer talk, but I don't really see Malkin's fault here. There was nothing he could have done, unless he wanted to stop, turn, and skate the other way, hence giving Simmonds a skating lane and a shot at the puck.

No by bias I mean Ovie is treated like a god who can do no wrong and no I couldn't possibly care any less what other fans think.

Well he shouldn't of went for that hit so late in the game it was easily not a elbow. Simmonds head was far down malkin hit him nice and clean.

He's a dirty player. There's no way around it.

Malkin's action on the play consists of touching the puck and turning slightly to the left. Simmonds' consists of flying headlong into Malkin with his head down.
To avoid the hit, Malkin would have needed to stop dead in his tracks and give Simmonds the puck.

The game doesn't end with 14 seconds left on the clock. It doesn't end when one team goes up by 3 goals. You play to the buzzer.

4-1 14 seconds left the game is over. I could understand if it was a shoulder to shoulder hit but the guy went after his head. Its called having respect. It was unnecessary.

Saying he's a dirty player is a HUGE stretch. He's done a couple questionable things in his career but to call him dirty is ridiculous. Chris Simon, Ryan Hollweg, Jarkko Ruutu, basically any of the Flyers, those are dirty players.

He's dirty sometimes, but it's more careless stuff then anything.

I LOVED seeing Malkin run off the ice after Ivanans confronted him for the run at Simmonds. What a *****.

You should probably post less about it since you don't care.

People will complain that he caught him with the elbow, but when the elbow is tucked against the side like that, I see no problem with it. The hit itself was probably unnecessary though, a little bit dirty.

That's a pretty big stretch.

He had a bad slew-foot on Mara in last year's playoffs, but he's never done anything to suggest that was anything more than a completely isolated incident. A few borderline high hits here and there, but there was absolutely nothing wrong with this one.

It kind of stunned me to see the thread, actually.

Ok lets stop beating around the bush.

This will end up in a Caps Vs Pens argument.
