I can see how Michalek got away without supplemental discipline. Yes he elbowed Hendricks in the head, but his head was at the dasher, which is pretty much at elbow level. That's like high sticking a guy laying on the ice...is it really a high stick?

It was a dangerous hit elbow or not.

Does shanahan put videos out explaining why someone wasn't suspended?

Caps fans in total meltdown, can't say I entirely blame them, though I don't feel sorry for the obnoxious ones. Nor do I feel sorry for Ovie.

The roid-rager has intentionally hurt more NHL players than Matt Cooke.
One day he will do that to the wrong guy, maybe a Bruin and someone with a short fuse like Lucic will Bertuzzi him.
When that happens, Caps fans may have something to whine about. Til then... ta-da.


Well, Subban is another player that is going to get completely destroyed by someone, and it will happen sooner rather than later. With guys like Gillies always coming out of the woodwork, it is just a matter of time.

And here's an impression of the Caps fans, with their TINFOIL HATS

"fornication this league, man!
they all fornication hate us, dude
down with Bettman and the regime, this calls for a vocal boycott against the fornication league
this suspension is bogus dude, OV should boycott the league and make them canshell the season, tell em to go fornication off"

If the Caps fans are in meltdown mode now, just wait until they grab that elusive tenth seed in this year's conference standings.

Interesting. This opens a roster spot for someone with talent.
I won't be surprised if the Caps went up in the standings after all :)

Reading a caps board would remind me of the "expletive deleted" scene from jay and silent bob.

When do we get to start the "Caps can't ever complain about anything that happens against them ever again because they employ Alex Ovechkin" stuff??

Needs more neon coloring to get the attention of Caps fans. Other than that, it is most excellent!

I still don't understand how there was no call during the game. Not only was the elbow high, but the roid rager left his feet. How did the refs miss this? They didn't see the guy who's been suspended in the past for injuring players barreling in on Z?

Z got off easy. Probably should not have.

AO's 3 games was well deserved. 2 suspensions and 2 fines in 6 seasons for dangerous plays. Reaching Matt Cooke levels.

I can respect Caps' fans being pissed about Michalek's non-punishment. I frankly have no idea how he got away with that without even a fine. I kind of wish he would have been fined, TBH.

Frankly Z should never have gotten a penalty. At some point you have to look at the player being hit. Hendricks was stupid. Who puts their head at dasher level? Z did nothing wrong and thankfully shabby got it right.

And when Malkin gets hit the same way ducking a hit I will put the blame on him as well of someone can actually hit him.

michalek should have been at least fined. this is a step backwards in addressing contact to the head.

as for caps fans...in the '09 series, it was on a message board or in one of those puck daddy comments...a caps fan was hollering for a penalty when a penguins player brought the guy in the penalty box his stick during a stoppage of play. he said it violated the delay of game rules by throwing equipment on to the ice - since the official rule does not mention whether or not it matters that play had stopped. he was dead serious. at that point, i stopped even casually browsing what those idiots have to say.
