Simon Says, 'Suspend Me'!

Rangers 2, Islanders 1. YAY!!!
The visiting Rangers completed the 2-game sweep of the Fishsticks, coming from behind to tie it up on a power play goal by Paul Mara, and then in the 3rd period Petr Prucha scored the go ahead goal after this bit of ghastliness:
Chris Simon of the islanders took a hard (but clean) check into the boards from Ranger Ryan Hollweg, and reacted like a mindless GOON, giving Hollweg a 2-handed stick to the face. Way to go, you frakkin' idiot! Enjoy your suspension, (The NHL announced this morning that Simon is indefinitely suspended, pending next week's hearing.) you stupid maroon. Anyway, Simon was given a match penalty (for attempt to injure) and a game misconduct. Petr Puck scored on the ensuing power play.
With 20 seconds left in the game, Henrik Lundqvist swiped his stick at a puck that was about to cross his goal line, and after a lengthy official video review, the puck was ruled to have not entirely crossed the line. No Goal!
The Rangers are currently in 8th place, with 15 games to go. YAY!!!
LET'S My Family Crest GO My Family Crest RANGERS!
