08:22 AM ET 03.27 | Topics much beyond water being wet and ice being cold are likely to find the Penguins and Canadiens on opposite sides Wednesday -- thanks to Marc-Andre Fleury's being injured Tuesday. The Penguins are adamant that Canadiens winger Brian Gionta intentionally knocked Tyler Kennedy of the Penguins into Fleury, causing an unspecified injury that forced Fleury to sit out the third period. "It's our opinion in here that he shoved [Kennedy]," Penguins left winger Matt Cooke said. "That's what we all thought." Gionta didn't share that assessment, suggesting that the culprits were Kennedy and gravity. "If you watch the replay, their own guy falls on Fleury," he said. "Pretty much, it's self-explanatory."

Gionta's a goalie killer. He does it in subtle ways and it's effective. He's a goon.



Never judge, only mock.

I find it very hard to believe that MAF moves fast enough in goal to produce has own gravity, so society it is! :^)
