help seperate player from puck. two guys on one in that situation, jar the puck loose work the puck tot he front see what happens.

Again, that's Burrows. He's going to throw that hit a minute into the game, in the 2nd period and with less than a minute to go.

I like that kind of player. I like a physical brand of hockey. I prefer to have our guys finish off checks then peel away.

Especially in the offensive zone. Hits like that wear defenceman down. Hits like that are meant to hurt the opponent. Something I do not, nor have I ever had a problem with.

Hurting a guy with a check and trying to injury a guy to me are not one and the same.

An elbow to the head like Murray on Kostka tonight in the TB-MON game is a deliberate attempt to injure. This hit by Burrows was intended to hurt McD.

To me, there's a difference. Some may not see the difference, that's ok.
