Excuse me, Sens Enforcer? You dare accuse a genuine blue-collar working-class NHL-certified puck of intentionally head hunting for Scott Niedermayer? You should be ashamed of yourself.
It is obvious that Scott Niedermayer planned that out. Ask yourself this: is Scott Niedermayer one of the better defensemen in the league? Yes, yes he is. Can't we assume then, that he has vastly great powers? We can!
Scott Niedermayer blatantly abused his all-powerful puck-handling mind powers by allowing Alfie to slap it then willed it towards himself at an accelerated velocity. This is no Jedi mind trick. It's the real deal, and you can bet it was misused for Niedermayer's dirty purpose.
...Or maybe Alfie was just trying to kill the feral muskrat clinging to Niedermayer's chin...
ADD: Where do you think that puck got its weekend steroid martinis? Scott Niedermayer's on-again off-again beard.
EDIT: It's the question. It drives you crazy. I guess that still makes sense though. Except...was it black when it was a ping-pong ball? Lol.
no_dirt - LOL, Niedermayer getting a blocked shot registered = priceless.
jenni m - You're welcome! And...from ping-pong ball to ding-dong reject---toughest player in the NHL! Lol.
