You're forgetting Thornton's other cheapshot on Markov when he headhunted in game 3 and then Travis Green elbowed Markov in the head in the same game.
On the tying goal in game 4, Knuble also slashed Theodore up under his chin before the goal went in (probably WHY it went in).
It hasn't been the whole Bruin team, O'Donnell, McGillis, Gill, even Rolston have all played it tough but didn't resort to cheap stuff.
But Murray and Lapointe have been hacking everything in site and Thornton and Green have been throwing numerous cheapshots. Last game Boynton joined in on the fun with a crosscheck to Zednik's neck (which Don Cherry's lackey doesn't think was a penalty - at least Hruday laughed at him). Also, remember when Raycroft speared Begin in the you-now-whats?
Then the refs have been turning around and giving Kovalev borderline hooking penalties because they think he showed them up.
The Canadiens remained patient through ALL of that and it is starting to pay off.
