Oh slap me silly, Semin!

Marc Staal hits Semin, then Ovechkin hits Staal, then it looks like Semin crashes in the goalie intentionally and Staal takes offence to that and drops the gloves. The only problem is the skilled Russian looked like a little girl when he was slapping the sh*t out of Staal in their brief tilt. The play by play guys get a good laugh out of it. So did I.

Did he get a game misconduct for not having his tie-down, too?

That's a stupid, stupid rule. What's the point? To protect the player by ensuring his jersey doesn't get pulled over his head?

And that fight looks eerily similar to the last time you and I went toe to toe, Sean.

Your slaps hardly hurt at all, bwa ha ha ha! :-)

Oh boo. haha. You haven't seen me fight before. I used to hang out with guys that had those soft play boxing gloves and I chipped a guy's front teeth. You don't want to mess with me :)

I hate that jersey rule too, but I'd have to look into why it was implemented.

Slappy Semin. How embarassing. At least he dropped them.

I watched that McLean-Crosby fight again and it's funny to see McLean's face afterwards. He was stunned! haha. Way to go, Crosby.

He slapped around a bit, but at least he dropped 'em and tried. WAY better effort than any NBA or MLB player. Carmello Anthony comes to mind when he bitch slapped someone upside the head and ran for the exit a couple years ago.

I'll have to look up this Carmello Cowardice. Not sure what you're talking about
