Found January 21, 2012 on The Pensblog:
So far the Canadian media has not had much to say about P.K. Subban's dangerous slew foot on Chris Kunitz. Elliot Friedman of Hockey Night In Canada commented on it on Twitter: If this was Matt Cooke (or Brad Marchand of the Boston Bruins) we have a feeling there would be more "analysis" from the media. But not when it's Subban. We've watched P.K. Subban do this sort of thing against the Penguins three times and, quite frankly, leaving this relatively unpunished is a joke. Let's review why we are so pissed off. First victim: Jordan Staal - April 30, 2010 29 second mark. This is the least vicious of the slew foots, and maybe it's not even a slew foot, but the others make you question the intent. Staal was out until later in the series.   Second victim: James Neal - November 26, 2011 Subban got nothing for this while James Neal was fined for a high stick. ProHockeyTalk nailed it with this headline: James Neal fined for being slew footed b...

Pens make it 6 in a row, thanks to Malkin

And in a not surprising ending, Evgeni Malkin scores the game winner just 1 minute and 31 seconds into overtime.  Malkin and Neal were again the force to be reckoned with.   Neal and Malkin could not compliment each other any more, Malkin had 2 assists on Neal’s 2 goals and Neal had the assist on Malkin’s overtime goal.  Kris Letang scored the first goal for the Penguins on...

It is rarely a treat to get up and down to the Consol Energy Center on a Sunday morning; however a performance like the one the Penguins put forth today somehow makes it worth it.
