God damn that .gif pisses me off.
Edit: I'd like to see the reverse angle though. If she grabs on with her left hand..then obviously it's a legit trip. Not a crosscheck.
I think it's safe to say she doesn't though because she appears to be gripping her stick with her left hand throughout. It looks to me like the only contact was their right skates touching, which caused Knight to fall since she was leaning on that skate at the time, but Wickenheiser was on her left skate so she had no problem moving her skate up to continue her normal stride, but it seems to me that once she felt contact she went down to the ice hoping to draw a penalty shot. The fact that Knight was quickly catching up to her and was going to eliminate the breakaway makes the dive seem more likely.
