While battling in front of the net with a Devils’ defender during Game 6 between New Jersey and Florida last night, Tomas Kopecky’s stick got up into the throat of an unsuspecting Harrold.  Kopecky was assessed a two-minute hi-sticking penalty on the play, while Harrold learned what it felt like to be a jouster in the Middle Ages.
