Afternoon Line

“I don't think it was a reckless play or a reckless elbow, I wasn't flying down the ice a hundred miles an hour with my elbow up in the air. That's what [Shanahan] called it, and I gotta live with it."

“Well I'm not happy with the suspension. I think he did what he had to do.  It was more like a reflex thing, my elbow kind of came up at the last second. I wasn't targeting his head or trying to injure him. It was a quick play that happened.”

-John Erskine of the Washington Capital discussing his 3 game suspension with Stephen Whyno of the Washington Times. Read more from Erskine.

Bull. Your hand left your stick to throw the elbow. You’re lucky it was only 3 games.
