Steve Downie tries to take Crosby's leg off
Now, if any of you follow my posts, you will know that I despise Crosby. But what I hate worse than Sid is cheap shots like this. Clearly Downie's intent was to take Crosby out of the game, or even the season; it happened nowhere near the puck and the duration of the event was sickening.
Downie was called for roughing (2 minutes) on the play. But a five-minute major should have been called (although you can't blame the refs because it was nowhere near the play) and a lengthy suspension should be in order. But knowing this candy-@$$ league, he will get a few games, if any, tops, even though the infraction was against Crosby, the poster boy of the league.
