Get off your high horse and please explain why you think the vast majority of the people in this thread are wrong.

Skinner then places his left arm on Bergerons right arm/abdomen and you can see his foot dragging along the ice as his knee/thigh are still in contact with Bergerons right leg. So if your Patrice, your likely to conclude you've been slewfooted, and at that stage of the game, you have no problem sending a message to midget Bieber over there.
I completely understand Bergeron thinking it was a slewfoot. It makes sense. He had his feet taken out under him, and Skinner (a player he was warned about) was involved. Of course he would jump to conclusions.

Skinner didn't just fall down, he went down because he was being hooked/impeded/interfered with by Bergeron.

And yes, everyone disagrees with you because we all hate the Bruins. It has nothing to do with the fact that you may be wrong.

No one is saying Skinner is the victim: just that he didn't slewfoot Bergeron, and Bergeron jumped to conclusions.
