If you were looking for penalty minutes from Maxim Lapierre this season, you have been sadly disappointed.
Lapierre has averaged around a penalty minute a game in his last four seasons with one big season of 130 in 82 games in 2011-12. But this season has been different as he has only 18 in 53 games. He changed how he checked players after getting a five game suspension last season for a hit on Dan Boyle, then of the Sharks. "It’s never a good feeling to hurt somebody," Boyle said. "So I kind of have slowed down a little bit. Not on the physical game. I still play the heavy game on the forecheck and things. But I don’t gamble anymore on the hit unless the guy is facing me. I didn’t like that feeling of seeing someone on the stretcher because of my hit. Now, I’m just trying to do the same job on the forecheck with no gambles." Feb 15 - 10:07 AM
