A Nasty Slash and A Great Fight

A few items before I hit the sheets tonight.

First, the AHL’s Portland Pirates Joe DiPenta earned a 1-game suspension for this slash which ignited a fight between Jeff Cowan and Kip Brennan. Funny enough he was only assessed a 2-minute slashing minor for this swing in the last week’s Portland Pirates/Springfield Falcons game. I know of few of the Maine guys and let me tell you, DiPenta must be from New England, because he swings like a guy from Lewiston, I’m surprised he didn’t have mace on him to protect himself after this incident.

Also, last week George Parros was nice enough to give rookie John Scott an attempt to drop the buckets in the show. Parros got rocked, yes, but it was pretty cool of him to give Scott a chance at a fight. If watch these guys pair up at the face off it was clear this fight was staged and Parros gave Scott the go. Good time to fight for Scott as Minnesota was down 3-0 at this point. This fight sparked the Wild bench and Minnesota came back to win 4-3 in OT.

Scott Hartnell’s hair is way out of control, I love it:

Finally, the helpless Canadiens can’t win a game even with 7 guys on the ice!

With Carey Price on the bench and Montreal head coach sending out an extra attacker to try and notch the equalizer, defenseman Hal Gill’s penalty ended during the final minute and he remained on the ice, not realizing he was the seventh skater for the Canadiens

7-man advantage
