Goalies don't like it very much when players crowd them in the crease and jab at pucks already in the goaltender's control. They just don't normally react the way Flyers prospect Anthony Stolarz did on Tuesday.

Stolarz, minding the nets for the OHL's London Knight drew a two-minute high-sticking penalty when he swung his paddle and hit Windsor Spitfires forward and 2014 top draft prospect Josh Ho-Sang. In the back of the head. While he was skating away.

After Ho-Sang fell to the ice and was being attended to, Stolarz looked a bit miffed at Ho-Sang being down. He should be thankful he only got two minutes.

This was Game 3 of their playoff series in the OHL and London had little problem with Windsor, winning the game 10-2. One of those two goals, though, came from Ho-Sang. The Knights are now up in the series 3-0. It's already been a bit chippy as Windsor's Cristiano DiGiacinto was suspended five games for bullying actions toward a London player.
