Malone was looking to hurt someone for half the game. And he did. That's allowed in the NHL, and it's murder on soft little skill teams like the Habs. The headshot, however, isn't allowed. Sore loser syndrome is a well known truism of hockey, it's why the no starting fights in the last five minutes rule was introduced. I wonder if Shanny's videos will ever note the score as part of the context of a cheap hit like Malone's tonight. It was certainly key to his motivation, I thought. He had a major chip on his shoulder all night.
Malone had been looking for trouble all night long. The referees were aware of this. I'm sure this will be taken into account.
Campoli did not move his head into the hit.
Malone aimed at Campoli head and even moved his arm into the head.
Yup Malone aimed right at his head with a follow through.
this is EXACTLY what Shanny is after.
6+ games for sure.
Very impressed with that team. Good team work. Gomez was dominant which is something they need all year long from him.
you realize he has, in a few preseason games, half as many goal as last season?

We'll see. I seriously believe JM is one of the reason we are doing better for 2 years now, and the more we go, the more he has an effect
Okay, i know many here will throw rocks at me, but when Tampa is doing cheap shot to your team, it's because your soft as hell...
We need guys that could prevend this *****... Someone would have been at malone after he run subban or Price and the incident at the end would have never happen...
We're too soft, and i'm srs.
Before the people who can't admit that we are soft reply to your post and say the usual stuff like "Gionta may be small but he's a warrior" "Cammalleri doesn't back down" "Hurt them on the powerplay" "We have Ryan White" etc...
malone left his feet when delivering the elbow as well.shanny s got no choice .gonna be minimum 5.maybe 10.it should be interesting cause brendans come down real hard so far.so if he softens up now he ll look like a clown.
