Mattias Ohlund Slash

For those of you who did not catch it, Canucks' defenseman Mattias Ohlund took a baseball-like swing at Mikko Koivu's ankle late in last night's Canucks/Wild game.

Here was the reaction of Wild enforcer Derek Boogard after the contest:

“Obviously a slash like that, you expect to see at least a five-game suspension,” he said. “We’ll see how things play out on Wednesday. Their so-called agitators were taking liberties but as soon as I step on the ice, they scatter to their holes. I’m not going to stand for it. Maybe I go out and slash [Markus] Naslund or Pinky and the Brain twins.”

For Illegal Curve, I'm Richard Pollock.

Ballhype: hype it up!
