Dainius Zubrus brings tackle hockey to the NHL

Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports

Dainius Zubrus introduces the concept of tackle hockey. It's probably not going to catch on.

Dainius Zubrus was not pleased with his holding penalty against Andrei Markov early in the second on Wednesday night as he shouted at the referee on his way to the penalty box, "I did not [expletive] throw him down. [Expletive] off"

You see, the thing about that is ... he kind of did throw him down.
