Kukla's Korner Hockey
Dustin Tokarski of the Montreal Canadiens wants this one back..
You have probably seen the 'after' picture (below) of Dale Weise, who took Nazem Kadri's skate to his face last night.
Here is how it happened and scroll to the 1:45 mark for a slow-motion replay.
The video is about 5 1/2 minutes long.
Very nice presentation as always in Montreal.
Price was not scheduled to start tonight against Detroit...
Update from George: No harm, no foul:
Max Pacioretty's Olympic hopes may have taken a late hit.
The Montreal Canadiens forward had to be helped off the ice in the first period of the team's Saturday night game against the Carolina Hurricanes after taking a hard hit.
Pacioretty went legs first into the post behind Carolina goaltender Anton Khudobin and was taken immediately to the Canadiens locker room.
Pacioretty missed on two penalty shots last night within a span of under three minutes.
Geez, maybe he needs to wear some gear while on the ice.
Players that embellish on a consistent basis run the risk of not receiving the benefit of the doubt when they are legitimately fouled. Brendan Gallagher is too effective and too good a player to develop that unwanted reputation from the refs.
