Wait.... Bourque does grab him from behind and I think that provoked the punch. However, Bourque is coming to the defence of Gionta who obviously would get killed. I think that's a sucker punch but Bourque should have been ready for it as Orr threw off his gloves.
Huh? Sure I can understand Bourque defending Gionta, but Gionta came after Orr first. If Gionta didn't want to get killed he shouldn't have charged at Orr.
I'm sorry, but what do you expect to happen when the Habs top line goes out of their way to piss off Colton bloody Orr? Earlier in the game, my roommate mentioned the possibility of Orr getting into the rough stuff and I said that no one on the Habs was dumb enough to engage with him, and then... Well, every red sweater on the ice had it coming. Bourque is lucky Orr didn't rip his arm off and beat him with it. Don't poke the bear.
Great so everybody who drives the net will be punished by Mighty Orr. Fine with me, if the refs aren't paid by your organization, you will then get some significant minutes on the PK. Which might not be a problem for you, you will get the satisfaction that Orr kicked somebody's ass again. Driving the net is still part of the game. I didn't see Gallagher roughing Reimer whatsoever.
What happened before is that Orr got pissed whether it was because he decided that getting a knee out was similar to seeing his stick being thrown or because Prust took Komarov by the neck yet at to deal with a tough Grabovski who wanted so much to fight Prust, 'cause we all know Grabovski would fight anybody as he already prooved in the past. And Gorges CLEARLY wanted to go with McLaren. 'Cause Gorges knows he's a good fighter and knows that McLaren was just a little finesse player that can't fight so Gorges knew he'd get the best of it (by the way, do disregard the fact that I already address the fact that McLarent was "nice" enough to not throw a whole lot of dangerous punches towards Gorges, see it's not all black or white). As far as satisfaction...euh sorry. Not happening. Compared the threads in here and the ones solely talking about your team's good performances and you'll see what wins. 'Cause you guys know that you have more chance to goon it up way more this year than destroying teams with your high-end talent. A talent that is more likely in Boston now than in Toronto. But hey....you were the best team tonight. Enjoy. You deserve it. Just hope you will be careful with your expectations though....
I really don't think Habs fans are in any position to criticize an opposing team for "lack of talent."
Orr was going for a shoulder check, Pleks jumps out of the way, and catches Orr's skate. There was no 'intent to knee' here. Intent to completely destroy with the shoulder yes.. but that isnt a penalty.
lol are you kidding me, please show the whole sequence not the end of it
