Phoenix Coyotes forward Vernon Fiddler once blocked a shot on the top of his left foot that was so hard the puck sliced through his skate and left him limping.
Ray Whitney had a goal and an assist, and the Phoenix Coyotes frustrated Washington's top line with a flurry of blocked shots in a 3-2 win over the Capitals Monday night.
New York Islanders left wing Matt Martin has been suspended by the NHL for two games for a blind-side check to the head of Phoenix forward Vernon Fiddler.
"It's one of the things I'm paid to do," Fiddler said nonchalantly.
Fiddler said he chooses not to wear Skate Fenders, a relatively new piece of equipment made in Gaylord, Mich., because they get in the way.
