Kovalchuk Taken Out by Ruutu

January 31, 2008 at 11:36 am Leave a comment

In last night’s 4-1 win by the Atlanta Thrashers over the Pittsburgh Penguins Jarkko Ruutu took Atlanta’s best player and one of the NHL’s leading goal scorers out of the game with a knee on knee hit. If the Penguins don’t put a leash on Ruutu they better not be whining when one of these days someone will try to put either Sidney Crosby or Yevgeniy Malkin in the hospital.

Notice how Ruutu “backs up” the hit after Atlanta’s Steve McCarthy comes after him. That a boy! Make a dirty hit, then bend over the boards and try to hide on your team’s bench.
