08:11 AM ET 04.17 | On Tuesday in Ottawa, Carolina didn't win much -- including a game, a few fights and forward Jeff Skinner, possibly to another concussion. [Skinner] was knocked out of the game with 6:49 left in the first period after an open-ice hit from Sens defenseman Jared Cowen. The hit came near center ice as Cowen, a big guy at 6-5 and 230 pounds, appeared to target the head of Skinner, who's listed at 5-11 and 200. No penalty was called on Cowen, who was playing his first game of the season after a hip injury in October, playing for Binghamton in the AHL during the NHL lockout. He did receive a fighting major after the Canes' Chad LaRose dropped the gloves and went after him with Skinner down on the ice.

Typical Senators scum. This team is the worst.

I thought you might be a little pissed at some other Ontario team today?

A target of opportunity, Canuck. Just a target of opportunity.

LaRose going after Jared Cowen looks as ridiculous Brian Gionta going after Milan Lucic. I know he's trying to be brave but .... c'mon, don't be stupid.

Get rid of the instigator penalty and guys like Cowen will think twice about this stuff.

And so it is written in the Scrivens...

Me too. I've watched the Leafs fall back to earth for decades now.

It was a clean legal hockey hit.

He should have skipped the chute and executed the best ever "stop, drop, and roll" instead ;-)

I knew you were tall........................but 6'10". They could have used you as Chara's twin last night. By the way, did the Leaf's play last night? <early Danny tweak>.
