Marchand at times made me sad to be a Bruins fan tonight. He needs to quit that. Some of those falls were inexcusable.

Not sure the Bruins deserved to win this one. The Caps played well, and they are playing defense like I've never seen them play before. Every time the Bruins were in the offensive zone, the Caps were somehow already set up in a 4 man box in front of the goal. This isn't the Washington defense I expected to see.

Regardless of what happens from here on in, the Caps have played great. All three games could have gone either way. It will be interesting to see how the rest of this series plays out.

Um, could it be because Wideman gave him a little crosscheck on the lower back after the whistle?

Um, yeah.

What's so hard to grasp here, and honestly, why's it even an issue?

This is spot on.... Alzner coming in the scrum is not a big deal at all, and def not a penalty. Alzner gesturing to Looch about being a baby and crying is.... That **** he will have to answer for.

I could care less about Alzner making that gesture....he does not have the balls to ever go with Lucic and if he did his face would be caved in. I will tell you that he will be a target now and may end up regretting it not only from the persepctive stated above, but from the perspective of his personal safety.
Yeah, when Lucic surgically picks his spots its playing a smart game and realizing that he's not a goon and whatnot, but if Alzner doesn't fight an amateur boxer with 40 pounds on him it's because he doesn't have the balls

Sounds about right

Lucic turns to face him, Hendricks jumps in, Lucic squares off with Hendricks, then Alzner decides 2 Caps aren't enough, and jumps in.
1. They never squared off. Hendricks was just keeping him away from Wideman.
2. Lucic throws a punch and Hendricks returns the favor. Refs get involved and try to break it up.
3. Wideman never really did anything past the cross check.
4. Alzner tries to pry Lucic off Hendricks since the ref wasn't getting anywhere.

Any things else you want to distort?

Yeah you were. You said Hendricks when it was Wideman that cross checked Lucic.

Probably something about how he'd prefer to be able to keep having things go through his head.

He got a really raw deal with the Bourque thing, as a result he and the Caps are hyper sensitive to his head so whether intentional or not they're going to take exception to anyone hitting him up high.

Here's my tin foil hat theory (I don't endorse it, but is totally possible):
Julien is upset about calls being made/not made in favor of the Bruins. He speaks out publicly about how badly he thinks that the series has been officiated. He tells Marchand to dive his ass off the following game. Marchand obliges and draw two penalties, could have easily been more. Lucic the agitator throws in his bit of inspiration and we have more penalties. Direct result of Julien's public displeasure of the officiating.

Boom, Boston wins.

And to think earlier tonight I was saying how boring this series had been.

I still don't hate or want to fight Caps fans though. There's really been not too much to get worked up over yet.

So calm your **** Bostan fans. You're up 2-1 in the series. Relax.

Yeah, well he may not have the balls to go with him but he`s also got bigger balls that he won`t go after someone smaller than him who doesn`t fight.....as for his personal safety....I wouldn`t worry about it.......alot of hot air........why would the Bruins hurt Alzner over a gesture when they did squat about Cooke ending Savard`s career?

He'll get to pick his partner, Boston has a plethora of players who would be willing to give the guy an opportunity to stand up for himself.

More. More. Goal was good. So was the win.

I'm not whining at all. Good game. Bruins won.

Glad the B's won this one. Looking forward to the next game- should be another close one. Let's hope for a clean, intense and action-packed game 4!

Yeah you were. You said Hendricks when it was Wideman that cross checked Lucic.
No distortion. I agree with everything you said. Did I say anything different?

Hopefully it's Marchand. You get your pound of flesh and we get ours.
