It truly amazes me how idiotic some people are acting about the players participating in the Olympics. First the Pav thing, now this.
Hank's back has been injured for a couple years now, its been an ongoing thing. Anyone who follows the Wings knows this. If he hadn't tweaked it in the Olympic game, he would have tweaked it in the next Wings game.
And the Wings get scored on yet again due to an absolutely horrible call.
I'm glad the announcers at least took the time to show the replay and state how absurd that call was. And called by a ref 100 feet away, in a snow storm, with 3 inches of snow on the ice no less... Ridiculous.
Those are the exact type of calls that spawn all of the conspiracy theories fans like to throw around.
Gotta love the special treatment the Pens always get since they are the league darlings.
Thornton, a first time offender gets an absurd 15 games for a gloved love tap, while the Pens players never seem to get more than 5 games, despite the fact they are repeat offenders for dirty HEAD shots, the thing the league always claims they want to get rid of...
