EA released a still from the upcoming NHL 12 video game, and it shows Marc-Andre Fleury getting trucked by the Capitals’ Brooks Laich. At Heinz Field.
As a fan of EA’s NHL franchise, this is cool. NHL 11 had no Winter Classic feature, and the only way to get into the goalies’ faces was to poke-check them repeatedly after the play. And then you go to the box for 2 minutes for roughing. Totally weak. If I’m going to the box for messing with a goalie, I better be able to destroy him.
