Antoine Roussel is kind of a [insert swear word of choice here]. He has 451 penalty minutes in 205 NHL games before tonight, so you know what you're getting with this guy.
And that means he doesn't get the benefit of the doubt when he does crap like this

Dallas fans are all up in the @BroadStHockey twitter mentions about this one, saying that Roussel and Brayden Schenn just ran into each other by coincidence here. Personally, I see a guy with his head up, looking at Schenn, throwing a low hit and possibly even sticking his leg out.
Roussel got a two minute minor for interference on the play, as well as two minutes for roughing after Sam Gagner stepped up and challenged him after the hit. Good on Gagner.

What do you think: borderline hit by Roussel or nah?
