A TEXT MESSAGE. What a saint.
"I had speed and I saw his number, but I did not hit him with the shoulder, I just pushed," Erne is quoted as saying in La Presse. "I was not trying to hurt him."
Hey bro maybe you should have thought of that right around….
Also Sorensen said in the Quebec press that Ashley dove, soo…
Step 1: Stop the auto-playing video
Step 2: Scroll down to the bottom of the site, where there is a second video player.
Step 3: Watch Adam Erne follow Jonathan Drouin FROM ZACH’S CREASE, seeing nothing but numbers all the way.
Two crappy views of Applesauce’s goal at 1:00.
It was a great pass,” Abeltshauser said. “In the right place and not too hard.”
The rookie got the puck as a souvenir, but won’t be holding onto it for long.
"It’s a great Christmas present for my parents," he said. "I’m going to mail it out right away so it gets (to Germany) in time."
Fournier’s first pro goal is a total Fournier goal. He also had 7 penalty minutes.
His game was a very Fournier game.
“My reaction? It goes beyond disappointment,” Russell said. “You have two separate plays and two players breaking the rules. There’s one player hitting another player from behind — clearly from behind — and our player going headfirst into the boards, being cut under the eye, missing the rest of the game and the next game, minimum, with a concussion. And no suspension.
“Then you have Darcy Ashley cross-checked in the throat on purpose and once he goes down, he’s cross-checked again while he’s on the ice. And no suspension. I remember two years ago Darcy Ashley doing the same play and getting four games. It was almost identical to what Sorensen did and Darcy was suspended.
“And the player who hit Jonathan Drouin is a repeat offender. Cameron Critchlow got more of a suspension for apparently removing a guy’s helmet, which you can’t even see on the video replay, in the playoffs two years ago and he received more of a suspension. It doesn’t make sense to me. We’re supposed to be protecting all of our players and I don’t see that happening.”
Konrad’s goal is rad because he was a healthy scratch for 5 games in a row.
