I just watched the Carolina Pittsburgh game and while neither team looked overly impressive I was disgusted by Pittsburgh's actions. Two of Carolina's players (Tuomo Ruutu and Erik Cole) were taken out of the game as a result of injury. Both injuries resulted from a Pittsburgh player intentionally colliding knee-to-knee with the Carolina player. As I see it, this is a gutless play that can only be seen as an intent to injure. Neither incident was particularly close to the puck and the Carolina players were both caught off guard.
I was calmly rooting for Carolina at the start of this game. I will now also be rooting against Pittsburgh.
