Wild-Blackhawks referee photo is the stuff of memes [IMAGE]
Wild forward Zenon Konopka got 30 stitches in his face in Jaunary. It was pretty ugly.
But we'd think those wounds have mostly healed by now. So it's hard to say exactly why an official during game one of the Wild-Blackhawks series looked so scared while watching Konopka on Tuesday night.
Whatever the reason, the ref looked like a nightmare-stricken child curled up in the fetal position. Here's Ben Garvin's priceless photo:

Coming off a 2-1 loss, Konopka and the Wild probably hope to strike a bit more fear into the Blackhawks and a less into the refs during tomorrow night's Game 2.
