David Legwand lost his temper after a scrap with Evgeni Malkin … and he nearly cost the Detroit Red Wings the game vs. Pittsburgh on Thursday night. Malkin knocked Legwand’s helmet off as the two engaged near the net, and Legwand responded by delivering a butt-end spear into Malkin’s midsection.
Malkin sold it fully in front of the ref, who handed Legwand a five-minute match...
Detroit Red Wings center David Legwand was ejected from Thursday’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins after he speared Evgeni Malkin in the groin.
Legwand matched up with Malkin for almost every shift, but the Pens sniper scored twice, which probably ticked off the 33-year-old Wings vet a little. The game was tied 4-4 at 16:14 in the third period when Legwand ended a battle...
I would love to keep things positive after the Red Wings' 5-4 OT win over the Pittsburgh Penguins, but this play by David Legwand has to be at least reviewed by the league, despite Legwand getting a 5-minute major for butt-ending and Evgeni Malkin being okay. It's a gutless, cheap-ass butt-end, and it has no place in the game.

The Red Wings are the walking wounded. Going into the trade deadline needing defensive help Nicklas Lidstrom to come out of retirement, Kenny Holland instead found himself needing to buy a bandaid.
Detroit native David Legwand is that temporary relief. The finger in the ****.
Holland traded Patrick Eaves, prospy Calle Jarnkrok, and a 3rd round draft pick for the 33-year...

If one thing is certain, NHL teams in the playoff race are starting to settle in.
And this game was a perfect example of that.
This game, if nothing else, was well played, and playoff-like. In the end, a playoff like ideal rang true. Score on the powerplay. The Penguins twice were able to use the powerplay to their advantage. Once to tie it, and once to win it.
In other positive...
