Video- Jarome Iginla On Alexei Emelin’s Hit Late In A 10-1 Romp

from Mike Chambers of the Denver Post,

Late in the third period, Montreal’s Alexei Emelin delivered a low check on Joe Colborne, sending the Avs forward head over heels. Emelin was given a clipping minor and matched Iginla with roughing and unsportsmanlike penalties.

“At that point of the game when they’re beating us like that, it’s not really a matter of whether it’s clean or not. Just don’t think (it’s right),” Iginla said. “If I’m going up-over like that with 2 minutes left and down 10-1 I’d hope guys are coming in (for me). That’s the way I’ve played and I think that’s the way it should be played. They can do the hit if they want. It’s part of the game. But we’re allowed to do what we do too. That’s what penalty minutes and stuff are for.”

I now consider Carey Price an elite enforcer in the league.

Interesting how that one got Emelin a clipping penalty while the one where Helm was injured got zilch. That hit on Helm still irks me for a number of reasons, including a total lack of response by the Wings.

The sad part is that Mike Mckee will probably never be given a chance to make the team. Tough guys aren’t needed anymore.  Cough cough. Bullshit!
