I kinda agree of course, but also kind of not.

We really got no argument to scream bloody murderer. Its a hit that looked at isolated can't be said much about. A bit over the top, but not illigal.

But they are down by 2 with 35 seconds on the clock. Burrows don't go in to take the puck, take McD out of the play etc, he goes in to make a big hit. Normally a hit like that is made to make the other team keep their heads up -- and there is nothing wrong with that, its part of the game -- but you definitely do not see many of them with 35 sec left on the clock...
