So....Ovie decided to hit Gleason in the Caps/Whalercanes game tonight.
It ended up being a knee-on-knee hit.
He didn't put any weight on it as he left the ice.
He got a five minute major and a game misconduct for it.
He's potentially pretty injured now. And if the injury doesn't keep him out for a while, there seems to be talk that Campbell might suspend him (I mean.. it is his second game misconduct in a week).
All I can say is...
This is really shitty timing, Ovie. Like, really shitty.
Thank goodness I actually like the Caps as a team and I won't be too cut up about it if Ovie doesn't play when I'm there.
But still..... this is HORRIBLE timing, Ovie.... Guh.
In other news, Keith Ballard is a moron. Remember when Surovy tried to kill our poor little Slovak goalie when he hit him upside the head at the Worlds last year? Well, Ballard did the same thing tonight to his own goalie.... Only.... it was a lot worse.... Like.... Vokoun is in the hospital.
You can see the hit here if you haven't seen it already.
Let's hope Vokoun is okay. That was a really brutal hit and it was 100% unnecessary and stupid.
