I'd consider Thornton a dirty player, but that doesn't change the fact that he's one of the best in the game, heck, come playoff time it probably just makes him better. As for Begin, the guy's got a ton of heart and pride, he did not dive on the hit. To see fellow Habs fans whining about the Bruins being dirty is kind of embarressing, this is hockey here, and it's the playoffs, you do what it takes to win, regardless of whether or not it's dirty.
I'd also like to note that Souray has had more than one good half a season, he had an amazing playoff series aswell
Against your very own Bruins, with a broken wrist at the time I might add... He obviously doesn't have the offensive talent of Gonchar, but even as underrated defensively as Sergei is, Souray has the edge when it comes to his own end.
Now for the guy who had that amazing rumour, the Bruins have a real #1 goalie now... I'm pretty sure Byron Dafoe was supposed to be one of the league's top goalies back in 02... With his 35 wins, 2.21 GAA and .907 SV% he really wasn't far off golden boy Raycroft's numbers this year. Regular season means squat, you don't have a real #1 goalie until Raycroft proves it. I have no doubt he'll one day become a playoff proven goalie, but seriously, he hasn't proven it yet. So bring it on
Here's to a hard fought series, with as little whining about refereeing or cheap shots as possible.
