Oy, That’s Gotta Hurt

I’m not following the NHL playoffs very closely, now that the Canucks are golfing. I do read James Mirtle’s blog, though, and he links to a nasty hit by Rob Niedermayer and (and!) Chris Pronger on Tomas Holmstrom. Careful, there’s some blood.

Holmstrom skews to the dirtier end of the Lady Byng scale, so he probably had that coming. I’ve watched it a couple of times, and while Pronger does raise his elbow (and deserves to be penalized), it’s really the combined inertia of the two Ducks (heh) that does the real damage.
