Wings’ David Legwand Delivers Butt End to the Groin of Pens’ Evgeni Malkin (Video)
Newly acquired forward David Legwand nearly cost the Detroit Red Wings two important points when he received a five-minute major and a game misconduct for butt ending the Pittsburgh Penguins’ Evgeni Malkin in the groin last night. The play, which Malkin was able to recover from, took place with 3:46 remaining in the third period of a 4-4 tie at Joe Louis Arena.
Luckily for Legwand, the Wings were able to kill off the entire five-minute penalty, before eventually scoring with less than one second remaining on the clock in overtime to escape with the 5-4 victory.
So I guess it was all worth it in the end for Legwand and the Red Wings’ faithful. Check it out:
