Buffalo Sabres v New York Rangers

Patrick Kaleta has a history of being a menace, and not in a delightful way like Mr. Wilson’s cartoon neighbour. He’s a menace in a different way, the kind of way that often leaves opponents writhing on the ice in pain (he’s been suspended by the NHL multiple times).

On Sunday night, Kaleta decided to cross the line yet again. This time his victim was New York Rangers’ centre Brad Richards.

Kaleta got five and a game for that crosscheck from behind, and will no doubt be receiving a call from Brendan Shanahan tomorrow.

Richards is lucky he didn’t break his neck.

UPDATE: Of course Rangers’ head coach John Tortorella had a few things to say about the hit.
