Again hope he's alright. Shame that had to marr what was otherwise a pretty awesome game today. We got at least 3 more to go this year. Looking forward to them
Thanks for stopping by with the nice comments Nice to have other fans come here as well and not to just troll or whatever.

Hopefully its us two in the Conference finals, that would be an amazing series.

Thanks for the kind words

I agree that there was no mal intent on Ference's part, but it was extremely dangerous to shove a guy from behind that hard right near the boards.

McDonagh's a tough kid. He went into the boards really hard, but I hope he just got rattled.

I think the thing you see in the replay is Ference's right forearm shoving McDonagh into the boards upon impact. That's what the league doesn't want to see on a defenseless player in that situation.

I'm not sure but looking at the replay it appears as if ference kind of freezes after the hit as if he was concerned about McDonough. I don't think any of these players want to hurt each other. It's a fast game and when you have to make a decision in a split second sometimes you mms the wrong one.
On another note, what a great game. Sucks that that hit is taking away from one of the best games I've seen all year.

Yup. That's exactly what I see. Ference had ample opportunity to realize that he shouldn't shove a player in McDonagh's position like that. Very dangerous move and I think Shanny will agree with this sentiment.

It seemed like as soon as he went down, he grabbed between his legs for his junk actually.

every hit/concussion is different. so even though he didn't get one last year (although the league was waay less strict on concussions, so who knows), it doesn't mean he doesn't have one now.

The people defending Ference on the main board must be typing with braille keyboards. Honestly, how can you defend something like that? Then some people are saying Prust's board on Chara was as bad as this. I wonder about people sometimes, then I realize not everyone can look at things subjectively.

I also noticed as he was skating off, he shook his head pretty vigorously as if trying to work out a kink in his neck or shoulder. I don't think he'd have done that with a headache.

Some of these people have become very defensive from all the over the top hate the Bruins get these days

And some are just dumb. What can you do?

Btw, I don't mean the little twitch he gives in the vid I replied to. I remember seeing him give his head a really good shake later on during his skate to the dressing room. Anyone who recorded, please confirm.

That's a good point, but usually that's for air travel. Boston is a quick train ride back to NY, they may be taking amtrak as they usually do for games in Philly.

I wouldn't doubt it. Grown men cry when they get really ****ing hurt. It's just life.

What's wrong with crying when you get shoved like that into the boards in Hockey? I'd like to see you take that hit.

Lol, I think he had the wind knocked out of him and was breathing really fast and shallow to try and catch his breath.

Funny--we had a discussion a couple days ago about a key Rangers prospect Dylan McIlrath who freight trained another player up high in a recent WHL game. I like McIlrath's mean game--he's just about a defenseman's version of Milan Lucic--but IMO that was a bad hit and he deserves the suspension he's got.

I think Ference deserves one as well--the length of which may depend somewhat on whether or not McDonagh is concussed. I think if he is--it should be at least 5 games. I don't think Ference is particularly a dirty player--that sometimes these things do happen but when and if you're the perpetrator you need to be held accountable.

It was a real good game until that point. That really marred it in my eyes. Losing McDonagh for any length of time is going to hurt the Rangers badly. I read somewhere that he had over 30 minutes TOI in this game and he's been playing 25 minutes or more very regularly and is a +15. A really good player who should be one of the best D in the league in the next several years.

I'm not knocking the kid, I just have NEVER seen a professional hockey player cry on the ice before.

just an observation. That's all.
