Well-known commentator Dmitry Guberniev, in a conversation with a SE correspondent, reacted to the four-match suspension of Pittsburgh forward Evgeni Malkin.
“Here now his wife will lather his neck, because 200 thousand dollars are not lying on the road. He very seriously summed up the family budget, Kasterova is crying. And now they will endure difficulties, and she really puts him on bread, on water, because this is a serious blow to the family budget. So Malkin will stop eating oysters and eat empty potatoes, which is how he should be. But seriously speaking, he hit with a stick – the disqualification is deserved. You need to keep yourself in hand. I love Zhenya very much, but still he is an example for all of us, so he should be more restrained on the ice, ”Guberniev told SE correspondent Polina Melnikova.
Pittsburgh Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin punched Predators defenseman Mark Borovetsky in the face. In addition to missing matches, Malkin will pay $190,000 in fines. The money will go to the players’ emergency fund.
