Did Carkner flick blood at Rangers bench?
Fri, December 10, 2010

By DON BRENNAN, QMI Agency

Allegations were made by players on the Rangers bench that Senators' Matt Carkner flicked blood at them while skating to the dressing room following his first-period fight with Derek Boogaard.

“He just skated by, wiped his brow twice, maybe three times and just flicked (the blood) at us. I don’t know why, but that’s what happened,” said Brian Boyle. “I was really surprised.”

Carkner, who was cut over the left eye, stated rather unconvincingly he didn’t know why he was given a misconduct along with his fighting major.

“Maybe I made a gesture or something like that,” he said. “The (linesman) said he had to give me a 10 and I’m like, ‘Why?’ He said they were complaining. I don’t know, I just got in a fight with a big guy and the adrenalin was rushing. I tried to get off the ice and they were chirping me.”

Carkner denied flicking blood.

“No, no,” he said. “I don’t even know who was bleeding at the time. I saw Boogaard was bleeding on the ice. I was just trying to skate off and get our guys going.”

Rangers coach John Tortorella wouldn’t comment on the incident, but said he thought Boogaard suffered a broken nose.

Lets get something straight first of all. I get sick and tired of reading how Carkner beat the crap out of the Rangers Brian Boyle. Lets be honest now. Carkner completely took Boyle by surprise and sucker punched him before Boyle knew what was happening. Boyle was down on the ice with Carkner on top because he was basically jumped and taken off guard. If Matt Carkner was any type of scrapper, he would have stepped back, dropped the gloves and then challenged Boyle to a fair fight. As far as I'm concerned Carkner if the gutless one in this incident and quite frankly had they fought on even terms, Boyle would have cleaned a clock as the saying goes. End of story!

rntkgectiig the 1st or top 5 pick is hardly a disaster. a disaster is the same old same old and getting 10th or 15th pick. i just don't like the boogaard deal in $ or yrs. we were set up to have most contracts end in 2 yrs (rozy drury avery, and others in 1 yr like voros and brash) and then sather goes and matches reddens length of deal. starting to kill our hope for even 4 yrs out.i've already seen people commenting "well we can buy him out or send him down if it doesn't work out" pretty sad already that we're planning for that and the guy hasn't played one game. and i'm saying that from the perspective that the contract is so bad the people who are writing that are not wrong. but then why sign that deal. too much in yrs and $.

Another wonderful example of the "virtuous" game we call our sport.

Boy, this turned out to be a tempest in a tea-pot didn't it? Just another example of the media looking for controversy - ANY controversy - to boost a "story." Utter crock of s*&t.

The NHL has already reached the depths of the WWE and is quickly sinking to the ghetto level of the NFL and NBA.

Why wouldn't the ref just look at their bright white jerseys?

The play was stopped and if it was his intent it would be impossible to miss them.

Looks like he was making a gesture that they were just chirping.

On looking at the video a few times, I don't think so. The way his hand moves, doesn't really look like he could flick anything, or meant to.
