I’m sure Cowen was jiust bracing for a hit and had no intention of making contact with Girgensons head, right Shanny?

let’s not forget that Richard Panik is the guy who charged and headshotted Adam Almquist in the Calder Cup Finals last season, knocking him out of the series.

Oh Dick Panik being a dick? I’m *so* surprised based on how much of a dick he was in the Calder Cup finals against Grand Rapids.
