"He competes every night, he cross-checks, he is mean, he is a man, he comes to play every day."

During the closing seconds of the first period on Thursday night, Roman Polak checked Tyler Toffoli from behind and was ejected for it.

The play itself was innocent enough as Polak had squeezed Toffoli off by the half-boards, problem was all Polak got were numbers and helmet. The rugged defender was given a five minute major and a 10 minute game misconduct, ejecting him from the game. He also collected a hit, a block, and a giveaway during his 6:54 of work against the Kings.

Polak now has eight points on the season and his five goals ranks second behind Cody Franson (6) among blue liners.
