Many people believe the spear to the groin started with Milan Lucic. He may be considered a legend in that regard, but the origins of this time honored tradition may be muddied with multiple other spears. Last night was another example of a spear that belongs in the Spear to the groin Hall of Fame.
Jordan Staal gets fed up with the Penguins and delivers a spear to Bryan Rust’s privates.
I can neither confirm or deny that Staal is sensitive due to his brother leaving town. This seems very outside of his norm. Hopefully he can find the help that he needs after he pays the fine for this play.
