from Damian Cristodero of Lightning Strikes,
Kubina received a two-minute penalty with 7:06 left in the third period for the knee-to-knee hit, and then had to fight Coyotes captain Shane Doan, who retaliated. After the game, Yandle told reporters he had no doubt in his mind Kubina stuck his knee out to initiate the hit.
“It was such a dirty hit,” Yandle said. “He sticks his knee out deliberately. I had him wide and he stuck his knee out deliberately. There’s no room in the game for that.”
But Kubina, who said he had not yet watched a replay of the hit, said there was no intent.
“No, not at all,” he said. “I didn’t try to knee the guy. I was going to back up first and then I tried to hit him and he skated right into me. That’s all I can say.”
