Found April 13, 2013 on Puck Drunk Love:
It's understandable when goaltenders get frustrated because no one is clearing the crease for them. When an opposing team's forward parks themselves right in front of your goalie, you're supposed to move that player -- and don't be surprised if the goaltender goes ahead and does it for you if you don't. Craig Anderson found himself in that position Friday night against the New Jersey Devils, with Adam Henrique blocking his view. Anderson cleared his line of sight, but probably not in the most appropriate way possible: Ow.

You Make The Call, Did Craig Anderson Butt-End Adam Henrique?

from Brian Stubits of Eye On Hockey, As part of a chaotic sequence around the Senators' net on Friday night, Anderson was peering into the corner following the puck while Henrique was skating right next to him. Slyly, Anderson stuck out his stick and, with the butt end, caught the face of Henrique. At the same time, David Clarkson and Zack Smith were having a fight...
