Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Jason Botchford of the Vancouver Province,
“I just think the fan got a little bit too involved,” Malhotra said. “There’s just no place for that in our game.
“There’s boundaries that should never be crossed. We’re in our area of work. We are all for the hootin’ and hollerin’ and supporting your team and saying whatever is tasteful out there. But as soon as you cross that line and want to become physical with a player, we have to make sure we take care of ourselves and we’re protected.”
Initial replays do not back up Malhotra. The video shows Rypien lunging from the bench area into the stands and at the fan who was just clapping, and maybe jawing at Malhotra.
