bb, you're getting crabby. I suggest warm milk. Actually warm milk would make me crabby. Thornton's hit should have been penalized. Match penalty ? That's why it would be nice to hear post game explanations. I don't think Begin was faking. He's has shoulder problems and he probably thought it popped out. But I'm just guessing. One thing I wonder is why so many players leave themselves so unprotected. Everyone does that now, with their back to the play. I don't know if it's European influence, a soccer thing, or what, but I remember when players would protect the puck but stay in more of a side posture. There are a lot of hits from behind where a player turns away late. Obviously you have to penalize, but players have to be aware of their position.
