Edwards mouth muscles are attached to his Gluteus Maximus. It's why both muscles make the same noise and gas.

Sorry, but I actually found it kind of funny.

It was bad, but I haven't hear that kind of chirping since secondary one.

Andrew Ference not suspended

Mike Murphy of NHL on Ference non-suspension: AF claimed contact was incidental and unintentional. "No apparent injury" so no discipline.

This pisses me off to extreme lengths/heights watever u call it. Im not mad at the fact he didnt suspended but the way they went about it. They asked him about it and he said it was "incidental and unintentional" and there taking the word from a guy that shot the crowd the bird and claimed his finger got stuck?? Cmon is this league just screwing with us now? Ive lost all faith in the nhl the league is never gonna change. So because halpern didnt get his head knocked off Ference wont be suspended. Alright /end of rant

Not surprised at all, as it didn't deserve a suspension. However, to say contact was incidental and unintentional sort of raises an eyebrow.

how this guy Campbell can even have a job is beyond ridiculous. Two incidents involving his sons team but yet nothing. Wiz taunts a player = suspension. Averys sloppy second comment = suspension. Ferrence flipping off fans = 0. Ferrence leaning and cheap shots Halpern = 0.

I've not often seen a player be as stupid as Halpern on that play. One second he looks at Ference, the other he looks away and then skates away from the play right into Ference shoulders. I don't think I had ever seen something like that.

What were Ference options on the play ?

1. Brace himself for the impact (which is what he did)
2. Make an effort to get out of Halpern's way (lol like that's gonna happen)
3. Stop him with his hands before contact happens, give him a tap on the butt and tell him to be careful next time (even more of a pipe dream than #2)

If Halpern, or any of you, expected option #2-3 from Ference then you're delusional. What Ference did wasn't very nice, but it was barely anything at all. He basically just braced himself, or at worse leaned a little bit. Yes it was intentional, yes he wanted to hurt Halpern.. but it really was Halpern's fault. It's not like Ference chased him down the ice to give that hit.

You see him make eye contact then lower his shoulder towards Halpern, sure it was just incidental, and the Easter Bunny is real. Some Bruin fans were claiming Halpern was faking it, I guess Dr Recchi must of gave his diagnosis again.

Considering previous similar events the middle finger definitely was deserving of 1-2 games.

I saw the motion too. I don't buy what some Bruins fans are saying, with Halpern skating into his elbow and faking it to draw a penalty. It is what it is. Ference stuck out his elbow and caught him in the head. It was dirty, but not close enough to draw a suspension. I look back to the Torres hit on Seabrook, and if that didn't get a suspension (and it should have), neither does this play.

There's no elbow at all. I don't know what elbow you're seeing there but there's none.

Greg Campbell will be a UFA after next season so the Bruins better get this guy signed long term before then considering all the crap they got off with this season.. If Campbell hits the UFA market the dude will get paid big time.. He's like the immunity idol of the NHL..

Oh wow. When Eller got hit by hit by McQuaid and seemed a little stunned on hi first shift in game 6, he actually dislocated his shoulder. He pushed back into place while on the ice. I didn't notice at all...

Dude, it absolutely warranted a suspension. It was a CLEAR, INTENTIONAL head shot as you can see him aim the head with his shoulder. Didn't the GMs just have a meeting about this not too long ago? They are trying to cut down on it. If the Refs had seen the play, I'm sure Ference would have gotten a 5min. To make it even more obvious, Ference doesn't even look back..Is it another one of ''oh, I didn't know he was there...'' crappy excuse?? Instead of being ejected, Ference gets an assist on the third goal, where a spear to Hammer's neck was also missed.
I don't mind the Refs missing a penalty behind the play. I think it's stupid because that's why the NHL decided to go with 2 refs, so that one can watch things that happen behind the play, but I guess they weren't paying attention this time.

But the way this league has handled themselves this year, and in these POs, is incredibly ridiculous. Downie gets suspended 20 games for his hit on McAmmond 4 years ago, throws the exact same hit in these POs, gets 1 game. Kunitz bows down and sticks out his elbow so he can hit Gagné's head who's got a history with concussions. Torres gets suspended for a hit to the head, first game back, destroys Seabrook in a clear blindside shot to the head, no suspension.
Richards clearly shoves Connolly into the boards from behind, obviously, it's Richards, no penalty.
Ference clearly aims Halpern's head, no suspension.

I mean, those were all clearly malicious hits, it really doesn't get more obvious than those hits. That's what is overly frustrating. The Chara hit, even if I don't agree with it, I can understand how you can spin the ''I didn't know the stanchion was there'' argument and I know Chara didn't want to break MaxPac's neck. I still would have given a suspension because the whole point is to sensitize players and make them responsible, but it didn't surprise me.
These hits however, were crystal clear intentional. That's what is really disturbing.

What a warrior. I said it right after the trade and I'll repeat it now, Eller is going to be a fantastic player for us. He had his ups and downs this year but it's great watching him come into his own. Eller with 10-15lbs+ and a few years' experience will be quite a player.

In honour of the end of the season, will someone please post that GIF that someone will post after a goal is scored where it's some guy with sunglasses moshing? I haven't saved that yet and would love to see it 1 more time at season's end.

Oh man.. that was exactly what I thought when I saw the replay. I just didn't know he could play immediately after replacing it. Damn..

It's discouraging to see the league run by a bunch of morons like Bettman, Burke, Colin Campbell, etc.

We are making no progress whatsoever. The superstars have disappeared from the game have been replaced by a bunch of guys whose job it is to end careers in order to preserve their own.

Coming on here for the first time after Horton's goal, had to study all day so I couldn't make a post.

I was obviously sad to see the playoffs run end, especially after such a great run last year, but I can't be too upset. I think this team really fought hard and gave it their all. We could have advanced, and we had many chances to, but it wasn't in the cards this year.

Ference stepped into him while he was in a vulnerable position. He intentionally tried to hurt the guy with a blow to the head. It's exactly these kinds of things that the league is supposedly trying to crack down on. I don't get why the league is so inconsistent on how they police this kind of stuff.

I'm going to disagree with you on two points here and strangely enough they're almost contradictory.

Personally, I didn't see an elbow so maybe I need to revisit that play.

Secondly (and it's strange that you wouldn't support a suspension if you thought an elbow was thrown) I think the league should be giving out suspensions for this kind of thing. It's behind the play, shot to the head and intent to injure. Three strikes and you should definitely sit out.

I just don't see how the league can seriously claim to be doing something about concussions when they see this and do nothing about it. And I'm not saying this because I'm a Hab fan (we're eliminated anyway so it doesn't matter) I'm saying it because we keep seeing this kind of stuff over and over and the league isn't doing anything about it. And so we get talented players (Marc Savard anyone?) who get injured and it hurts the game.

The NHL really needs to smarten up about this stuff.
