Kind of surprised neither of these stories have been covered here:
Ben Lovejoy and the Ducks tried to end Nathan MacKinnon's season with a knee on knee hit, down by 6 goals. Coach Roy wasn't really sure what to do with the NHL's sudden crackdown on fighting:
"That was a knee-to-knee hit, and should have been a penalty in my opinion. When it's 6-0, this game doesn't need that kind of cheap shot. After that, there was some talk from coaches I guess," Roy said. "What should I do? He put his fourth line on the ice, and I'm not going to put my first line out, so I put my fourth line out."
"I matched his lines all night," Roy added.
This comes just a day after renewed calls to ban fighting in the league after another Toronto Maple Leafs incident:
Parros was knocked unconscious early in the third period Tuesday after his face slammed into the ice during a fight with Maple Leafs tough guy Colton Orr. Parros spent several minutes motionless on the ice before he was taken off on a stretcher.
The Canadiens said on their Twitter feed Wednesday that Parros would be out indefinitely with a concussion.
I can't see the league banning fighting unless they're going to retrain the referees to call penalties far more accurately. Knee on knee hits in blowout games have to lead to 20+ game bans, intentional or not, if you're not going to allow fighting in response.
Also, Parros has an awesome moustache.
