Our Post on Puck Daddy – NHL Playoff Beard Watch: Unsung Unshaven Heroes

25 May

The stage is nearly set for the ultimate NHL showdown. The Devils and Rangers battle it out at center stage while the Kings wait in the offing for their opponent to be named. It’s a long, hard fight to be among the last teams standing. Every one inch is earned.

This week, we salute the beards of some Unsung Unshaven Heroes. Marquee name or rookie sensation, it doesn’t matter what their contracts say now.

Game Misconduct My As…

5 Mar


Evidently Travis Zajac has been watching the same Youtube videos we have where Kris get’s undressed by Deryk Engelland, his team-mate during a play fight. But this time, Letang not properly tieing down his jersey during an actual game dearly cost the Penguins. Zajac pops Letang in the face and they start grappling and realizes that Letang’s jersey isn’t strapped down and pulls it off him knowing that he can get him out of the game for good. Brilliant? Yes. Fair? Well, I guess that depends whose side you’re on. Should this rule be changed in the NHL rule book?

46.13 FIGHTING/Jersey – A player who engages in a fight and whose jersey is not properly “tied-down” (jersey properly fastened to pants), and who loses his jersey (completely off his torso) in that altercation, shall receive a game misconduct penalty. If the player loses his jersey despite the tie down remaining in tact and attached to the pants, the game misconduct is not applicable, however this must be reported to the League office so that the jersey and the tie down can be examined.

So, I guess if you want to get Kris Letang out of a game, you just have to jack his jersey! Humm … Ovi is on twitter again isn’t he. Just in time in case they meet in the play offs.
