The St. Louis Blues dominated the Florida Panthers on Saturday night by a score of 7-0. When the game was safely out of reach, the Panthers started showing their frustration. Tomas Fleischmann was caught trying to hit T.J. Oshie in the head with his elbow. Thankfully the hit missed, but it's safe to say the intent was there and if it would have connected we'd be hearing about a fine or a suspension from the Department of Player Safety.  Fleischmann's flying elbow was captured perfectly in this GIF found over on the St. Louis Blues subreddit. There's really no need for this type of play in hockey. You're losing big and you're frustrated. That's understandable. However, at no time should you be trying to clock an unsuspecting player in the head with your arm.

He’ll be back...

Blues declaw the Panthers

The skeptics wanted proof. They’re getting it. After back-to-back playoff exits there remains a percentage of Blues’ fans who understandably would like the team to give them a reason to believe that expectations should be any different in 2013-14. It’s only two games — please note that the Blues started 6-1 last season — but the reasons are plentiful through the first...

Tim Thomas, Panthers Take 7-0 Thumping

NHL.com photo of Tim Thomas getting scored on, again. Well, that was quick.
