Idiot of the Day Award Goes To: KEITH BALLARD! Also, Ovechkin’s season may be over…

So village idiot and league tough guy Keith Ballard decided to take his frustrations out on  his own teammate, goaltender Tomas Vokoun. In reality Ballard was angry about Kovlalchuck’s goal and tried to break his stick over the cross bar. However, Ballard didn’t look before swinging for the fences and instead hit Vokoun, who was trying to find his jock strap. Vokoun was taken to the hospital for a deep gash to his ear, but will make a full recovery.

The video is pretty funny when you see Ballard do his best Sammy Sosa impression, but what happened after? Where did he go? You don’t really see him again…

Here’s a quick look at it:

In other injury news, Alexander Ovechkin was injured in tonight’s contest again Carolina. Ovechkin, who was given a major penalty for kneeing and a game misconduct will not receive an MRI until sometime tomorrow. So, this begs the question, did Ovechkin throw his knee out to slow down Tim Gleason? To me it looked to be that way, and unfortunately both players were injured. You make the call:

Mind you this is Ovi’s second time of being thrown out of a game in the past 3 tilts. Granted he couldn’t come back in this one, but he was still ejected. Updates on Gleason’s and Ovechkin’s injuries to come.
