And the Oscar Goes To...

During game 5 of the Western Conference Semifinal series between the Detroit Red Wings and the San Jose Sharks perhaps the best acting of the 2010-2011 NHL season  was offered up for it's followers. After a play where Johan Franzen and Joe Thornton went into the boards, Franzen swings his stick around, one handed mind you, catching Thornton in the shin. What occurred after would have gotten Thornton a nomination for any major acting award across the face of the Earth.

The look of agony on "Jumbo Joe"s face after the stick strikes his shin pad (one of the thickest pieces of equipment) is priceless. Diving during such a pivotal point in the series where the Sharks were up 1-0 in the game and could possibly eliminate the Red Wings if the Sharks win is total garbage. Sure players may play up a trip when a stick is in their feet and they're driving for a loose puck. But, this kind of a dive has no place in an already penalty filled NHL.
