There was a post on the Penguins board saying:
" Was that Latendresse I saw take about 10 strides and hit Martinek from the Isles, causing an injury? I wonder if the Habs fans are calling for a charging penalty?"
That thread was locked up and everything. Nothing to talk about and lets not stoop down to the poster of that thread's level boys and girls.
No wonder Mario is looking to Vegas for salvation with supporters like that... some people think any hit is dirty, it's actually a pretty sad thing. As was said, Latendresse hit Matinek with a mediocre hit which caused him to loose balance bouncing off the boards and then he fell with his leg at a strange angle and that is where the knee injury came from.
Then again, these are the same fans that think a player can leave his skates and deliver a rising shoulder to the head and they call that legal. See Koivu, Letowski, Carter etc.
Even their press is malinformed when they state that Armstrong's knee was injured by Souray when it was clear that it was hurt when Koivu destroyed him with a solid, clean and legal hit. You even saw him limp off to the bench.
