The Los Angeles Kings topped the Dallas Stars by a score of 4-3 in OT, but before that happened, captain Dustin Brown caught Stars forward Antoine Roussel with this hit:
Some believe that Brown hit him up high while others believe that he made contact with Roussel in a way that made the winger’s own stick connect with his head.
Brown, 28, didn’t receive a penalty for that check. He made a big impact overall, though, scoring two goals (including the game-tying one) and drawing a roughing penalty when he mixed things up with Philip Larsen.
“He’s made some great plays for us early on – power play and five-on-five for the Okposo goal – but we need to get more out of Sam, moving his feet more, playing a little bit faster, a little bit quicker and providing a little bit more offense for our team.”
The Sabres, without two key forwards in Jack Eichel and Evander Kane with long-term injuries, which would help explain the team’s early offensive issues, conclude a four-game road trip Tuesday against the Philadelphia Flyers.
The Sabres also called up forward Hudson Fasching and defenseman Casey Nelson from Rochester in the AHL.
P.K. Subban clearly had a blast as Titans’ 12th man
This GIF of him using a sword feels like it will get some mileage on Twitter. After totally convincing other people about your sports/political/hot-dog-being-a-sandwich opinion, and then drop the P.K. dagger:
"You have to get everybody emotionally ready for the start of the game, and I felt I did that."
