Video: David Legwand Ejected for Butt-End Spear on Evgeni Malkin

lost his temper after a scrap with Evgeni Malkin … and he nearly cost the the game vs. Pittsburgh on Thursday night. Malkin knocked Legwand’s helmet off as the two engaged near the net, and Legwand responded by delivering a butt-end spear into Malkin’s midsection.

Malkin sold it fully in front of the ref, who handed Legwand a five-minute match penalty and game misconduct.

Legwand likely will hear from Brendan Shanahan and the NHL discipline office in the coming days. A suspension may be a possibility, though Montreal’s Alexei Emelin was fined $5K for a similar infraction last month.
