(Video) Robert Bortuzzo head shot on Jerry D'Amigo

Lastly, Is...

Vancouver Canucks: Zach Kassian no-class....

I would say that Zach Kassian is taunting an opponent. A bush league move in my opinion. Here's what Greg Wyshynski of Puck Daddy has to say on the matter. Gagner faced the Canucks for the first time this season on Friday night. At one point, the teams were involved in a scrum that included his former oral surgeon Kassian.Because hockey is a nasty, twisted psychological war in which...

Zenon Konopka double-minor for high sticking Jason Demers - GIF

This is a bad call, actually it's pathetic, as Wild tough guy Zenon Konopka was given a double minor for high sticking. You can see by the GIF that Konokpa never touched Jason Demers. The Sharks scored on the power play. You can bet that the Wild GM might be giving the NHL front office a call tomorrow. s/t CJZERO @blldgshockey11 Nope, not at all— CJ Fogler (@cjzero) December 13, 2013

(Video) Milan Lucic vs. Luke Gazdic

Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic (11g-13a-24pts) is a skilled fighter that can also score goals and put up points. He didn't really need to fight fourth line player like Luke Gazdic (1g-1a-2pts) who's put up very minor numbers in 25 games with the Edmonton Oilers.
