Begin's hit on Nylander
 
What a hit by egin on Nylander. He jumps on him totally and Nylander pay the price. :handclap: :handclap:

Even if Begin is not as big as Lapointe or Green, he play with his heart and that Habs play with emotion yesterday even theo who made good save exept the one in OT.

Keep on working Go HAbs Go

It wasn't the cleanest hit ever (I mean gloves were high), but still doesn't deserve any penalties and was beautiful to look at. They replayed it like 3 times on CBC and I just loved it. I really wish I could hit like that in open ice because..... well I would hit like that.

That hit was as clean as they come, it looks like the gloves were up because Nylander was bent bver. That was probably the best hit of the playoffs so far.

I think the Habs should continue to hit Nylander hard. He's been real good so far, their top centre and probably their top forward in this series. Giving him that extra attention could make him less effective in the game and (hopefully) it could drag that line down.

Let's hope for a repeat of that Begin hit :handclap:

We absolutely got to stop the Nylander-Bergeron-Samsonov line.

I think Bulis-Dowd-Begin should play against them. Those guys are really fast and can play on both side of the ice.

We got to stop letting Samsonov get into our zone by the middle. This guy can make damage when you give him some space.

Well considering it was late and Nylander had already held up because he knew it was offside I dont think the hit really meant anything. Yea, he popped him pretty good, but I guarentee that as Nylander was assisting on the game winner he wasnt even thinking twice about it.

We also need to knock the young Bergeron. It's good to hit an european like Nylander, after the hit, they dont have the same will.

He had the will to assist on that game winner. ;)

Yea...it had devastating effects on Nylander....... :shakehead

Oh, and as far as taking shots at Bergeron.......well ask Vaclav Varada and Anton Volchenkov if he is an easy target.

It didn't deter him with that beauty of a tip pass to Bergeron in the OT...

We haven't had a productive #2 in the play-offs in ages.

Not really, Domi's hit was pretty cheap. Skating from centre and hitting a guy from behind is weak if you ask me.

The hit on Tucker was much nicer.

benji 04-10-2004 11:11 PM

Bégins hit is definitely the hit of the playoffs so far.

Domi's hit was good. It was second. Just the fact that Hossa stopped made it look less spectacular. BTW, Domi's hit wasn't cheap. Hossa was just trying to make 1 too many moves and Tie sat him down.

Bégin's hit was just huge, defintiely.

If you think Begin's hit is the hit of the playoffs, you are either a complete homer or aren't watching the other series. Pothier on Tucker was huge, frankly the whole leaf/sens game was filled with hits as good if not better than Begin's. The Canuck/Flames series has had a few really good ones as well.

Begins hit was very nice, but there have been many comparable and many better.

Oh yeah, add Mclaren on Cajanek today.

And the Rob Blake's hit too! The one of Begin was great but...It's always overated by the Montreal Canadiens fans because it was done by a player of their town.

PS: Until Begin break Thornton in the glass I am not sold on the power of his checks :toothless

What about if he "McLarens" him in the head?

Ya Pothier on Tucker was a damn good hit. Varada on Sundin would have been HUGE if sundin hadn't seen him comming at the last second! :banghead:

What exactly does this mean? Is this another Don Cherry style Euros are wimps allusion? Are we expecting Koivu to play timid because he got crunched in game 2? Should we fill the roster exclusively with tough Canadians who don't lose their will after being hit? Aren't the vast majority Canadian hockey players of European descent? Isn't Bergeron a Canadian born player? :shakehead :dunno: :shakehead :dunno:

For the answer to this question and many more, tune in tonight. Hope you caught my apology Istvan.

That was an awsome hit.

The amount of anti-Euro stuff on this board is such that I find it easier to just ignore it now. Don't let it wind you up.

Your apology was not necessary [ i'm thick skinned] but accepted. I just got home from work and saw most of the 1st. Bruins goal was a little soft but Kovalev is finally hitting stride. Cheers.
