Check out this goal by Edmonton Oilers rookie forward Nail Yakupov. There is a school of thought that the NHL is starting to look like the European soccer leagues with some of the over the top celebrations of the players after they score a goal.
I don't know what to think... I don't like showing up an opponent. I get it the kid is excited as well.
Alexander Ovechkin took some heat after he scored a goal and then dropped it to the ice and acted like it was too hot to pick up.

This hit will cause team Canada to play with only 11 forwards when they play the Americans on Sunday Morning. Two teams have now accused the Canadians of playing dirty. First it was the Russian's Nail Yakupov. Today it was the Slovakians that said the Canadians are dirty.
Like I mentioned earlier today, Slovak Center Tomas Mikus didn't like being run over by J.C. Lipon, “I think, in my eyes, the two hits were dirty,” said Slovak center Tomas Mikus. “It’s not good in a world championship. We accept clear hits but the hands were too high.“Really dirty.” I guess the IIHF found it dirty enough to warrant a one game suspension.
J.C. Lipon suspended one game by IIHF. Won't be eligible to play vs USA on Sunday.
