I’ve already complained ad nauseum about PK Subban slew footing James Neal and Neal’s subsequent fine of $2,500 for high-sticking Subban as he was falling to the ice. Slew footing is dangerous and disgusting. Want to end a player’s season? Take out his achillies with your skate.
Last night, the Bruins pest, Brad Marchand, slew footed Matt Niskanen. Niskanen got up and retaliated. Good. Here is what happened.
We’ll see if Brendan Shanahan fines Nisky tomorrow.
Also, my favorite Italian spitfire Joe Vitale took on former NHL disciplinarian Colin Campbell’s son Gregory. He’s probably going to be fined for that too.
