5/21/2011 5:11:00 PM
Description: Steve Downie left Game 4 against Boston on Saturday late in the second period after he was hit into the boards by Nathan Horton. Toronto Star
Insight: In a bizarre call, Downie actually received a two-minute diving penalty along with Horton's two-minute roughing penalty. This call was purely based on reputation, as it is nearly impossible to think that a player would dive headfirst into the boards. Regardless, check back for further updates on Downie's availability for Game 5, as he looked very woozy after the hit.
