You realize that Shanahan collided with Roy before anything happened with Vernon.
and there it is...just what I knew was coming. avs fans have such an inferiority complex that they edit, interpret, and nuance what is plainly visible. I think what really drew the blood from roy's face was that invisible skate that swooped by and cut him as he collided with, um, gordie howe. then he fought Vernon and slew 8 ogres with one hand tied behind his back and even managed to win that game!
