This is one of the dirtiest cross-checks that I have seen this season. It was blatant, and one could make that argument that it was an attempt to injure. Uh-yeah! Obviously, the cross check by Russian forward Evgeni Malkin on Finland's Erik Haula injured him. Malkin broke Haula's jaw.According to Michael Russo of the Star and Tribune, Haula will not need surgery, that is very good news.Russo's Rants -- Some Wild news: Center Erik Haula, who left the day after the playoffs to represent Finland in the world championships, broke his jaw in the gold-medal game against Russia when he was cross-checked in the face by superstar Evgeni Malkin. No penalty was called. Haula sustained a nondisplaced fracture that will not require surgery. The injury will take three to four weeks to heal, the Wild says.
