Can someone please explain to me why we have heard nothing about Hollweg killing Horcoff into the boards the same night Downie punched Blake in the eye? Why have we hear absolutely nothing about the league "investigating" him like they were Downie? Is it because Hollweg doesn't have a record of this stuff? We all know that can't be it. He has a long wrap sheet then Downie. Is it because players like Tucker have built that reputation and it is expected? Someone please explain it to me... because I really don't understand it at all.
just thought I would throw this in from the Flyers website...
While the Downie incident was the focus of the Toronto media following the game, there was an equally if not more dangerous play earlier in the game when Braydon Coburn was checked from behind into the boards by the Maple Leafs’ Pavel Kubina. Coburn’s face was bloodied on the play but he stayed in the game. Kubina was not penalized.
That incident did not receive nearly as much attention, to the surprise of the big defenseman.
“I was a little curious about that. Sometimes that’s the way things go,” said Coburn. “This year we’ve had a few incidents, but in terms of my hit, it didn’t feel too good. I thought it at least warranted a penalty.”
He went on to explain the play from his perspective.
“I had the puck and was going to make a play on the puck. I didn’t even know who hit me until [Derian] Hatcher told me this morning. I didn’t see [Kubina] coming or anything like that. It was pretty much a hit from behind from my point of view.”
