Video- Sneaky Elbow From Boll

from Vicki Hall and John Down of the Calgary Herald,

Brent Sutter was seething behind the bench Sunday night after Jared Boll escaped with a minor penalty for an illegal check to the head on Alex Tanguay.

The video replay shows Boll delivered a blatant elbow to Tanguay’s face, knocking the Calgary forward out for the second period.

Already battling a chronic neck problem, Tanguay returned for the third period but was talking to the team doctor after the game and unavailable for comment.

“That’s an elbow,” Sutter said. “Tangs is going to hit him and he raises his elbow. . . That’s why I was disappointed to see that it was only a two-minute penalty out of it. It’s clear it’s right to his head.”

continue and watch the elbow from Boll below (scroll to the :44 second mark)...

Maybe “tangs” shouldn’t try to hit a guy in the numbers.

eh…nevermind…Sutter’s comments and the clip don’t jive…I think Boller was probably thinking “wtf I’ve got my back turned, two feet away from the boards, and this joker’s still coming at me,” but it’s pretty hard to defend that elbow.
