    Not the way I saw it they were down 2 zip with any empty net.

    Dumba needs to make a play to get the puck back at that point.

    Agreed.

    Should be a 5+Game plus an automatic minimum one game suspension.

    Funny that Flames fans are piling on Dumba for turtling when they've got the king turtler himself.

    He got the puck and a pp for his team trying to come back, how was it not the right play all around?

    His feet never left the ice before the hit so clean.

    Using "It got a thread here" as something to backup your argument isn't the strongest point.

    Gutless coward? That would be lomberg punching a guy in the back of the head when he's on the ground.

    Go look back at the clock 2 men down empty net he went for the easy highlife hit and took himself out of the play.

    Clear as day.

    Or they have the players' welfare at heart and are not stuck in the past.

    The dinosaurs went extinct, so should head shots and those who think they're clean.

    Down 2 with near a minute to play. Come backs of that magnitude happens every season. Especially when you have a pp to assist, which they had because the Flames lost their cool, as always happens in the NHL with clean open ice hits these days.

    Dumba tries to play the puck instead of the man, Backlund gets past him easy, suddenly it's down 3 and the game is realistically over... that's why you are taught since peewees, play the puck carrier, not the puck.

    Need a second look to make sure it's not Tkachuk.

    When Tkachuk turtles, its a "smart" play.

    Look's like Dumba is living rent free in flames fans heads now.

    We see the Wild 3 times a year. Not worried at all.

    Seriously though I don’t think they’ve actually said yet. My guess would be he hurt his hand fighting Tkachuk, although it’s hard to see how. Neither guy really landed any big shots.
