What is it with this Penguins organization? First the Islanders seek revenge on the Penguins for the DiPietro face breaking. From there it escalated into Mario Lemieux going to the media preaching how he thinks it may be time he leaves the game of hockey, if the NHL keeps allowing dirty-ness from one team onto another.
Then Matt Cooke delivers the most noticeable elbow on national television, and gets handed down a 10 game suspension that runs through the quarter finals. But with this you expect it from him. That’s just what type of player he is.
BUT THEN IN GAME TWO OF THE QUARTER FINALS AGAINST THE LIGHTNING. CHRIS KUNITZ DELIVERS AN ELBOW!
And this was no accident; Kunitz deliberately enters his slot and throws his elbow right into the back of Simon Gagne’s head.
GAGNE DID NOT EVEN HAVE THE PUCKING PUCK! HE MAKES RAFFI TORRES LOOK LIKE A SAINT!
In my opinion something must have been said between the two players before the incident, and instead of Kunitz being a MAN he cheap shots Gagne in the head. Then again I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if this was planned in order to knock out Gagne from this series matchup. The guy does have over 4 points in 3 games now for his team. And always a threat in the NHL Playoffs.
Stupid plays like this will bury the Penguins in the quarter finals. It’s bad enough they are missing Crosby and Malkin, but now they will be with-out Chris Kunitz.
NOW WHO SCORES THEIR GOALS!?
I expect at least a 2 game suspension and a fine. And hope Simon Gagne will be ok. He is concussion prone and the Lightning needs him if they want to advance over the Penguins.
I wonder how Mario Lemieux is dealing with the karma?
