There was a far better chance that Edmonton Oilers’ winger Matt Hendricks would, say, be throwing down with Zack Kassian Saturday in the Vancouver Canucks’ 44th home opener at Rogers Arena–to even a score in the past (remember that wild stick swing that broke Sam Gagner’s jaw?) than for a transgression in the present–but unbelieveably we had Ryan Nugent-Hopkins dropping the gloves with Canadian Olympic defenceman Dan Hamhuis in the third period. 616 more words
