Abuse of Equipment

Tarik El-Bashir reports in Capital Insider...

"It's well known that Milan Jurcina has one heck of heavy shot. Today, after a challenge from Karl Alzner, Jurcina took aim at the cross bar at one end of the rink at KCI. The result? He broke two sections of plexiglass. Wonder if that will be coming out of his check?"

I'd just as soon Jurcina take it out of goaltenders' hides. The defenseman has 25 shots on goal (two goals) in 31 games. But when he unloads...geez, it hurts from where I sit, and I sit in the balcony.
