This fight would be the equivalent of Godard going after Alfredson. If there is a Senator fan in the house- you should feel embarrassed. Maybe Carkner will be a Flyer next year, he would fit right in there. Adams clocked Alfredson cleaanly and it was clearly shoulder to shoulder.
Oh and Zona-get your facts straight. Alfredson hurt his shoulder not his head, The hit was clean and he put himself into a vulnerable position. You're not a Flyer fan are you?!?!
Godard WILL be in the line up next time and WILL answer to this. Carkner better show some stones and go after someone that is larger than 6'0" 195lbs. I know why Carkner went after Adams, but he didn't let Adams even get his gloves off completely. Next matchup Godard will introduce Carkners face to some heavy rights.
p.s. Still lovin the jealous Philthadelphia cryer fans comments on hating the pens which has nothing to do with this fight or any other fight. Get a life morons, your team has sucked since 75, can't win with a 35 year old style. The Pens hit (leading the league in hits), fight, score, play defense and most importantly win most of their games. Where are the Cryers???? oh yeah dead last in the atlantic! suck on that you fat f*ck losers! 1975, 1975, 1975, 1975!
Adams had to pay the "price" for the hit, dirty or not. Good for him for trying to fight the bigger Carkner. As for those people who think that Carkner is a goon, he isn't. That is not his job, he is a tough defenceman playing big minutes a game. It wouldn't make sence to go out and fight Goddard when it was Adams who was the "culprit". Now it is in Goddards hands to avenge Adams..... in the same way, for the same reasons.....
