CanWest sports reporter Cory Wolfe gets personal with a sports figure. Today, NHL linesman Mike Cvik - all six foot nine of him - gets cornered.
CanWest: Describe a time when you got caught in the crossfire of a hockey fight.
Cvik: Well, Shawn Cronin jumped Ron Stern in Calgary and broke my nose.
I was trying to protect Stern. Cronin threw a punch across my shoulder and hit me. . . . I looked up and (former Calgary Flames trainer) Bearcat Murray was standing beside me. There was blood on my sweater. I looked at Stern and he wasn’t bleeding. Bearcat goes: “C’mon, kid. Your nose is broken. Let’s get out of here.”
