07:21 AM ET 05.13 | Game 7 in Washington, where the Caps are undefeated, just got a little more interesting. Braden Holtby accused Derek Dorsett of committing a "dirty slew foot" on Mike Green in the third period of the New York Rangers' Game 6 victory over the Washington Capitals. A penalty was called on Green for retaliating by cross-checking Dorsett. Five minor penalties were called on the Caps to none for the Rangers before a scrum at the final horn. Holtby decried that as "lopsided." "The one that we all had a problem with, obviously, was the one on Greenie," Holtby said. ... "It's only because Greenie's world-class, one of the best skaters in the world, that he didn't fall on his back there. It's a dirty slewfoot."

Undefeated in game 7 in Washington? I think the Pens beg to differ.

Not well worded but I believe they meant in this series.

Wow, this series got interesting fast. Was reminded just how much these two teams can't stand each other. And what about to "Can't do no wrong Callahan?" Nice suble elbow there, eh?

Poorly written...the author meant that they are undefeated in THIS series at home. Having been at the 1987 Game 7 3+ OT against the Islanders (friggin' LaFontaine ****), I know he didn't mean more than this series...

So if this was a dirty slewfoot, does that mean there is such a thing as a CLEAN slewfoot???

May 13, 2013  09:23 AM ET

The best part of the Game was Torts post game performance. Classic !

It's dirty if you're caught doing it.

Apparently the refs forgot their contacts at home. They didn't see it. So, it doesn't matter. Just stop the puck, Braden Holtby! Just stop the damned puck!

And then 2 minutes??????

Also Callahan threw an elbow, let's not forget that. I didn't see it because MSG didn't show replays, but apparently TSN was all over it.

And can we make sure this realignment doesn't happen next year. If I have to keep watching Caps vs Rangers series, I might cry. Torts was the coach that said safe is death right. Why must he make the Rangers so incredibly boring. WHY. This is like watching the Devils trap years all over, except the cups being raised at the end.

Not going to happen at MSG any time soon.

OOOHHHHHH I get it.

Poor attempt at a slewfoot....Dorsett needs to work on it a bit....I mean really if your not gonna send the guy off with a concussion what good is it....maybe there's a few rink rats out there that can help him perfect it.....let's see maybe Marchand, Cooke,Neal,Ovie,Ruutu, Lapierre,Kaletta,Downie,Ott......
