Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Greg Logan of On the Islanders Beat,
As fate would have it, Brendan Witt’s comeback from a five-game suspension for a blow to the head of Maple Leafs forward Niklas Hagman will be in Toronto tonight at Air Canada Centre. Although the shot Witt delivered was unintentional because he had no stick and simply was trying to get his body in Hagman’s way, the Islanders defenseman understands if Toronto fans or the Leafs themselves demand retribution.
Asked if he might be a marked man tonight, Witt said, ” don’t know. I played with Ron [Wilson, the Toronto coach]. He coached me in Washington. He’s not that type of guy. But if it is, we’ll just address it. If I’ve got to fight, I’ve got to fight, and then, it’s forgotten about. It’s a part of the game.
