At this point in the game, Detroit was leading 5-1 with 3 minutes left. Inexplicably (considering the time left), Calgary coach had pulled Miikka Kiprusoff and put Jamie McLennan in net. McLennan responded by slashing the crap out of Johan Franzen as you can see in the youtube video.

The thing was, that was not an isolated incident:

Quote
The Flames took 11 penalties worth 36 minutes total in the third period. Defenseman Brett Lebda suffered a concussion after being punched in the face by Daymond Langkow.

"It's not about playing nasty," captain Jarome Iginla said. "It's just about -- it's 5-1 at that point, we don't like some of the whacks that were going on. Just trying to get something physical going at that time. It doesn't matter what they feel about it. We're just trying to keep it going for tomorrow."

General manager Ken Holland spoke about the incidents to NHL official Frank Brown after the game, a move seconded by the Wings.

Hopefully, the Wings can finish off this dirty, pathetic team tonight and escape Calgary without any serious injuries due to the Flame's thuggery. I don't think the NHL would be out of line to place sanctions on the whole Calgary Flames franchise.

It was uncalled for and really just pathetic.

The Flames are a classless organazation, they showed that the way they played dirty against the Lightning in the finals a few years ago.

Yep, I remember Iginla or whatever his name is being a real prick during the series.

Wow, that's amazing!  Can you imagine if an NFL lineman did that to a running back after a goal line stand that failed?

Luckily, the Wings dispatched of those thugs in Game 6. Unfortunately, we play in the western conference. That means games 3 and 4 start at 10 next Monday and Wednesday.:(

The goalie that took the baseball swing got suspended for five games. The Calgary organization and their coach were both also fined.

Iginla is a classless **CENSORED**. It was great to see his season ended.
