Dancing in the Reign: Steve Downie Is A Clown
Goon. Just short of pulling a Chris Simon, classless. Doughty deserved the charging call, but that far from justifies the crap you pulled two shifts later. You writhed in pain for 30 seconds after suffering whiplash, but less than three minutes later you managed to take one of the cheapest runs at a player I’ve seen in a while. You want to talk charging? You’re lucky you missed. Refs muffed the call anyway, should’ve tacked on the two minutes to go with your misconduct and fighting major. Leaving your feet, left knee exposed, hands and stick off the ice, what a joke. You were 5th in team scoring for the Tampa Bay Lightning last season, and you’re pulling this crap? You’re down one goal in the final minutes of a match-up featuring two of the top three teams in the league, and you’re thinking about yourself. That’s called me-hockey. I haven’t even mentioned that the player you went after was in his first game back from a concussion. You’re selfish. You have no class. Steve Yzerman must be sick.
