New York Post - Rangers fan sues MSG; says guard pushed her over seats
Caught this article on ESPN this morning. Bauer unveiled a new line of equipment yesterday including skates and head-to-toe protection. According to the article 5 skaters are going to being wearing the pads (Kane, Toews, Ovechkin, Backstrom and Giroux). The line also includes goalie leg pads, that Henrik has apparently been wearing all season.
So maybe it is the equipment, after all. Not only are they smaller, but its a whole new design/style/technology. The article says the equipment is designed to be lighter and stay in place better. I could see the weight and movement of the leg pads affecting a goalies play.
