all this is just a mind game the Flyers right now.
trying to get into the heads of Koivu and Kovalev.
Just let the habs play thier game, hard work , speed and talent should win the day.
Keep focus on winning the game.
I do feel the Flyers will dare to push the rules even more on their own rink. The refs should watch carefully against this, but you never know what the refs will do. It's comes down to the Habs to not fall into the Flyer trap and go nuts over the Flyers dirty play.
I'm surprised at how big this issue became. Almost like both sides are looking for excuses to get fired up or the media is giving them one. Either way, no one got injured, it wasn't a violent shot, it should just be dropped.
Would I be surprised? No. I'm surprised the Flyers haven't done it already. Just so long as K and K are alert and the Flyers are penalized, that's fine with me. It hope it doesn't escalate further. The Flyers should realize they have some soft, cheesy targets, such as Brie.
