Here's a link to a .gif of Legwand's butt-end penalty for those who didn't see

All that's missing is a pool of water and a diving board.

Way to sell it Malkin, you know, because there's no padding there whatsoever and the end of Legwand's stick is sharpened.

Penguins had a 3 on 2, almost 4 on 2 with about 15 seconds to go...somehow a turnover happens and the Wings went 3 on 1 the other way with Alfredsson having the puck with about 5 seconds to go...he took a shot from the right wing side and Fleury kicked a rebound out into the slot and the back checking d man, Scuderi, had the puck hit him in the logo and drop into the net with .4 seconds to go.

When they showed this from the back angle during the game it looked like Malkin looked at the ref first then collapsed 'in pain'. I'm sure that hurts getting drilled in the thigh like that, and obviously a penalty, but it looked a little embellished too.

lol embellished....nice try

YOU get butted in the gut and then tell me how it feels...

suspension worthy?

I'm quite certain it's an instant fine, I think a resulting injury would determine whether or not the player gets suspended. I've seen this kind of penalty in AHL games but it's a first for a Wings game for me.

No more than Neal cross-checking Glendening in the head.

yeah okay...you keep telling yourself that...

Ferraro had a tough game so I'm glad they won so the loss wasn't on him. He took a bad penalty in the second to give them a 5 on 3 that Malkin scored on and I counted 3 times on the 5 minute penalty that he could have cleared the puck and he couldn't do it. He is young so those things will happen of course.

On the 5 min PK when the Wings forgot about offense, the D looked really good.

It looks like the team has trouble multitasking.

I guess what I'm saying is, not converting on a key PP can really come back to haunt you, it seems. I guess it's sort of a truism, but it's my truism.

Wow I saw a different angle where it looked like it got him in the stomach. The thigh? He goes down from that? Legwand must have super natural strength. 5 mins was good enough. If he gets suspended Neal better be suspended with the cross check to the head.

im not new to this site i have been here just as long as you have.

but thank you for that.

i hope our teams meet in the playoffs.

I'm biased, but I probably wouldn't hope for that from your perspective. I don't think any team wants to see the Red Wings.

Watch the video again. It wasn't a Perron dive, Malkin's a bit more sneaky.

And Neal only got 2 minutes when he also should have got 5 for a BLATANT HEADSHOT....those things the NHL is trying to eliminate more than anything.

There is an obvious hesitation from the point he jabs him to the point where he suddenly is in "agonizing pain" and collapses like he was just shot.

He could have been making sure the ref was looking or make sure it wasn't a teammate that accidentally bumped him before putting on that little show.

If Malkin doesn't sell it like he did, that's likely a 2 minute penalty. It's a joke if Legwand gets a suspension for that.

yeah okay...you keep telling yourself that...

If you think a weak ass butt end to the midsection is worse than a cross check to the head, then you must be a Pens fan. That's just ridiculous bud. I've been hit with both, and I'll take the butt end any day of the week over a head shot.

Keep telling yourself you aren't a troll.

i am not, i am just preventing myself from saying something that might get me banned,

but i promised to be good.

so with that everyone has their opinions, and i respect that..

i really hope the wings continue to play like they did tonight, it will make for an exciting finish to the regular season.

I got your meaning, I just meant that when the Wings D doesn't have to worry about offense they seem to defend better.

no

i just happen tobe a fan of both teams.. been a pens fan since 1989 and a wings fan since i moved close to detroit back in 94. i had no idea they would have a future rivalry...so when they met in 08 and 09 i was torn in a way. but i still cheered for the penguins.

this is actually my first time on this account in like..over a year.

i was on my facebook account since.

woooo go teams! playoff hockey is around the corner!

WHAT A FREAKING GAME!

Fast paced and tons of scoring.

Glad the flightless birds got their wings clipped.

Whew!
