Wings’ David Legwand Delivers Butt End to the Groin of Pens’ Evgeni Malkin (Video)

Legwand butt end Malkin

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:
