Burrows gets tangled with Peter Regin and falls to the ice. Foligno glances down, ponders how to take advantage of a helpless pest, nearly opts for some kind of Captain Morgan pose, and then settles on nearly two seconds of skate pressure on the back of Burrows' shin.
Now that's a little more on the emphatic side.
Foligno was running Canucks in that game like he was Chris Neil on a Red Bull binge. Is this a penalty? Well, we wouldn't call it "sportsmanlike" conduct. Anything more than a penalty? It's a dangerous play; but a skate "stomp," it's not.
So what's your reaction if the roles had been reversed here, and Burrows was getting a leg up?
