Late in the third period Saturday night, Max Pacioretty of the Montreal Canadiens lined up Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang as he took a shot on Carey Price. The result: Contact with the head, Letang bloodied, and no penalty on the play. Pacioretty may be one of the few physical players on the Canadiens.
Letang was hurt but after being check out by doctors he was determined not to have suffered a concussion on the play although he broke his nose. But he comes back to score the winning goal on a great play that also had the Canadiens players on the ice standing around watch Letang poke the puck free from Carey Price. That play wouldn`t make Jacques Martin very happy.
