Midway through the (unspeakably horrible) second period, Karl Alzner made a shift change. It wasn’t an ordinary shift change. Alzner jumped Inside The Glass™ with Pierre McGuire, which is never a thing you want to do.
“You see where the door is open?” Ed Olczyk says while diagramming the play. “Watch Karl Alzner. Watch where he goes. He jumps inside the glass with Pierre. It’s a little snug in there, Pierre.”
“Yeah it is,” Pierre McGuire said with a high-pitched, creepy laugh. “Eddie, I’ve had that happen before at the Olympics and Kimmo Timonen and in Philadelphia one night with Luke Schenn in a regular-season game. Never had it happen in a playoff game in 11 years.”
So there you go. That happened in the second period.
