Found February 01, 2013 on The Hockey Guys:
Tonight’s NHL action featured a little bit of chaos. Some NHL gif’s include… Wayne Simmonds getting hit with a harsh elbow from John Erskine. We’re certainly curious if Brendan Shanahan will have something to say about this one. A shot of Simmonds on the bench following the hit. And following the Erskine hit, a scrap broke out between Zac Rinaldo and Matt Hendricks, which seems pretty decided that Rinaldo got the best of Hendricks in this one.   In happier news, Henrik Zetterberg of the Detroit Red Wings put together a great night, with a hat trick, as part of a 5 point game for the Captain.   The post NHL Nightly Overtime – 2/1 appeared first on The Hockey Guys.
