Don’t Touch Those Stitches

from the AP via CBS Sportsline,

As players from both teams entered the fray, Martinek said Hollweg threatened him and then reached for his face.

“He said he is going to take my stitches out. I think that was stupid,” said Martinek, a 5-foot-11, 200-pound defenseman.

Martinek added that no damage was done, but said he had never seen a player act in such a way.

“No, no. Never, never,” he said. “I think he could show a little bit of respect, but he didn’t. I cannot respect him.”

Hollweg contended that he was merely defending Orr, a 6-3, 222-pound forward, who has five career points and 239 penalty minutes in 114 NHL games. Simon and Witt had already double-teamed Orr before Martinek got near.
