Called Us Names!!!

Some guy named Zenon Konopka, who actually plays hockey for the NY Islanders (confirmed via Wikipedia), wanted to set the record straight as to what warranted the "retribution" that occurred Friday night. He says he was watching TV after the goalie fight between Brent Johnson and Rick DiPietro, and saw the Penguins laughing at his injured teammate (DiPietro suffered a broken face).

It wasn't DiPietro the Pens were laughing at.  It was your face.

Konopka further remarked, following Mario Lemieux's disparaging remarks regarding the "sideshow" on Friday, that he was always a big fan of Lemieux. Now he's going home to rip down the poster of Lemieux in his bedroom. Seriously.

I'd wager they were laughing because their goalie was in a fight. Period. Kind of like when your punter recovers a fumble and throws a rope for a TD - the players are going wild over the unlikely and un-often.

Now why didn't the Isles go wild over DiPietro himself laughing as his face was getting caved in?
