Lucic spears DeKeyser, Perry spears Benn, Daley sits on Perry, Yahtzee

I guess the NHL's annual start-of-the-playoffs crackdown on horizontal stick fouls only counts regarding obstruction and interference, not spearing, stick-swinging or otherwise using one's stick as an instrument of torture.

As noted in the Wings-Bruins quick take, @myregularface showed Milan Lucic spearing Danny DeKeyser in the groin...

 

And during tonight's Ducks-Stars game, Corey Perry did this to Jamie Benn, per The Score and TSN...

And Perry's indiscretion yielded a response, per @PeteBlackburn:

Even Pierre McGuire was stunned by the Lucic non-call (per the Hockey News's Adam Proteau):

For tonight only (and maybe the rest of the playoff year), Daley has earned my stick taps.

Dubinsky started the playoff nutshots with a nasty one to Sid in game 1. No penalty and no discipline afterwards. So don’t expect to see any for Neanderthal I mean lucic either.

Well Legwand got fined for it less than a month ago, so maybe we’ll see something here. Especially as it’s not Shanny’s call anymore.

And I’m fairly certain that Babcock held him accountable and ripped him a new a$$hole for it.

I can’t remember what Belfour got for his near castration of Lapointe in the 98 playoffs? I don’t believe he was suspended?

Remember when grapes told us all nyquist is a wimp and Lucic is a real man’s man. Big man to spear a guy in the nuts from behind. I bet don cherry was stroking his oldan remnant of a penis watching that replay.

If Nike were Steve Yzerman, he’d change his tune.

You should be banned from this website for life for putting that visual out there… May Jeebus have mercy on your soul.
