Martin Erat had a hat trick of penalties tonight against the New York Rangers. They were all costly.
Erat’s first period hook of John Moore led to a Rick Nash power play goal. His interference minor in front of the net negated what would have been potentially a game-changing Mike Green tally. Finally, late in the second period he speared Brian Boyle in the nards so hard that he may never be able to have kids. I guess that’s what the Rangers center gets for sitting on the puck in the defensive zone and refusing to move it.

Ouch. That looks painful.
I have a feeling that the Martin Erat era in Washington has ended — like, just now. Fare well, Marty.
Keith Jones on Martin Erat: "It's time to send this guy home. [That should be his] last shift tonight. Last shift on this team."
