That said, even if the hit is totally clean, from the "crunch" you could hear in the 300s I was sitting in, it was clear that Sauer would be in a world of trouble. Would have liked to see the boys give Phaneuf some push-back. I would think if I were Sauer it would feel good to know that my teammates took exception to the hit. Obviously nothing Bertuzzi-like, but a good, clean fight.

How often have the Bruins done that for their teammates? And it always looks to me like the right thing to do.
Like I asked the other poster, is Marc Staal a jackass/dirty player/*******/whatever for laying the hit he did on Stajan? Stajan could barely stand on his own and when he tried, he almost fell flat on his face. Stajan almost slammed his head on the ice sans helmet as well, which could have had that situation play out very differently. Or do you regard that hit as a clean hockey play because someone on your team was on the giving end?
