On Wednesday, Zdeno Chara and Tyler Seguin's leaping bro-mance topped hockey hugs, leading me to express some jealousy at Seguin's good fortune. Frankly, leaping into the arms of the Boston Bruins' giant captain -- hockey's equivalent of being scooped up by the Iron Giant -- just looks like a good time.
But I'll tell you what doesn't look like a good time: the reverse scenario. As much glee as one might be able to derive from throwing oneself into Zdeno Chara like the walls of a Slovakian bouncy castle, having Zdeno Chara throw himself into you seems much less enjoyable. This is a lesson Washington Capitals' forward Marcus Johansson, as well as the shattered glass behind him, learned firsthand Saturday.
