Even Don Cherry said he used to tell his team never to make big hits when your team is up 3-0. Habs were close to scoring 3 PP goals there. Imagine how stupid it would look if the Habs tied it and went on to win the game . Could have turned the momentum and cost you the series all cause of a bonehead play by Hatcher. Pronger should be a Flyer... he plays on the edge with cheap shots. Those guys really deserve a Lucic left right combo. I am a fan of Lucic having watched him in the WHL. One great fighter and player that kid is.

As this series seems to be speed versus thugs , if Flyers win the series it could lead to all teams bringing back a goon to fight. It took many years of clean hockey to get rid of most of the goons but looks like Philly wants to bring em all back.
