Carkner Accused of Flicking Blood
The details are sketchy, but the video (which can be seen after the jump) doesn't lie. On his way to the penalty box, Carkner wiped blood from his face and flicked it towards the Rangers' bench as he skated by. He was given a ten-minute misconduct and the league will likely have a look at the incident.
The source of the blood is uncertain. Carkner suffered a cut above his left eye and Boogaard may have suffered a broken nose, just days after returning from a shoulder injury.
Gillies, Thornton meet again
Trevor Gillies and Shawn Thornton renewed acquaintances during last night's Isles-Bruins clash, fighting for the first time since a meeting in the AHL over four years ago. Zenon Konopka and Adam McQuaid also dropped the gloves in the game.
