A Rude Welcome for Evgeni Malkin

Thanks to readers of this blog for pointing me to this...

So, somebody posted the clip of John Chocolate LeClair running into Evgeni Malkin and causing Evgeni to suffer a painful shoulder injury.

Seeing the play, it was obviously not due to any 'dumbness' by LeClair, but rather a slippery ice surface that hadn't completely set. LeClair almost does the splits himself before the collision.

It's an unfortunate incident, and will hurt Malkin's change to win the Calder unless Gilbert Brule suffers his 3rd injury of his short-to-date NHL career.

Why couldn't this kind of thing happen to Sean Avery?
