Wrong Hand Henrik

via Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

The Blues were victimized last night. A 2-2 game, midway through the third period at Vancouver. Paul Kariya was sent off for two minutes for “slashing” Vancouver’s Henrik Sedin. There were only two problems with the call: (A) in an attempt to con the officials with an acting job, Sedin dramatically shook his left hand. Except that Kariya had actually “slashed” Sedin’s right hand. Still, it was very impressive the way Sedin thrashed that left hand around. He was in so much pain that he skated away from the puck — just abandoned the thing — during live action. Sedin was so good in conveying his near-death experience.

I wonder if the ref will have a pre-game chat with Henrik when the meet up again?  On the other hand, I doubt it…
