Orr probably had no idea who it was, and likely didn't care. It was madness, and adrenaline was pumping. You start thinking out there in a situation like that and what happened to Bourque happens.

Prust started this entire mess and the Leafs put a stop to it. That's all that needs to be said. Whether hab fans choose not to admit it doesn't really matter. It's a fact that can't be argued. Just rewatch the game the evidance is all there.

He brought it on himself and his team by running Reimer more than once after the 4th goal and trying to rough up Komorov/Grabovski after the whistles. Now they want to cry about the Leafs being too rough when they were simply responding to MONTREALS ACTIONS?

What a bunch of ****ing hypocrites. It's perfectly fine for montreal (specifically Prust and pacioretty) to cause a riot but shame on the leafs for sticking up for themselves. What a flippin joke.

Finally, a leafs fans and habs fan agreeing.
Look up Matt Johnson suckering Jeff Beukeboom for a real sucker punch.

I have no problems with how any Leaf player conducted himself tonight. 3rd man in the fight? Yea, you're getting clocked, don't whine about a sucker punch. Wrap your forearm around the face/mouth of a player already engaged in a fight? Get bit. The Habs were all over Reimer from the 2nd period on, and given it was the Habs who concussed him last year, it was fantastic to see the Leafs grind em out for their insolence.

I didn't catch Orr's supposed knee against Plek, and didn't see the replay. But that isn't Orr's game.

Anyways, it was impressive the way the Habs kept playing, getting pressure and playing hard nosed despite an obvious physical mismatch. Lotta heart in that bunch.

If you look at that gif closely, Bourque comes from behind takes off Orr's helmet and throws the first punch even though it was a terrible punch.

He didn't sucker punch anybody like these Hab fans are claiming.

Talk about captain material.
But we already proved that Grabovski had already before mishandled Neil to defend a teamate so Pacioretty couldn't take the chance to see him knockout his friend. Grabovski could be real dangerous when the refs are around so you can't take the chance.

He tossed the first punch....any questions.

I doubt there's a suspension due to the fact that there's no clear evidence of a bite.

Either way, if you don't want to get bit, don't suffocate Grabovski by sticking your forearm in his mouth.

Someone would have to be a massive idiot to not know people have teeth in their mouths and if you headlock a guy across his teeth you will have a mark on your arm.

Well he might have underestimate how nutcase this Orr is. I'll give you that. Ryan White has been called that for sucker punching people lately, mostly ALSO for defending a teamate, yet when White does it it's a sucker punch, when Orr does it, the opponent had it coming. I get it.

Is Orr supposed to be read the mind of players who are confronting him in a fight?

Orr is a guy who sustained a massive concussion last year. You better bet he's going to react quickly when someone shows any aggression in his space.

And lol about Bourque fighting. He's better off not getting involved.

No, there were 2 other Habs in on that as well. 3 Habs vs 2 Leafs, it's on TSN.ca. Pacioretty went directly towards Komarov after Grabo stepped in vs Prust. Keep reaching though

The NHL is not going to review this play. Sorry guys. I guess they just aren't smart enough.

First punch? He grabbed him to stop Orr from punching big tough guy Gionta. Then took his distance. So that's how you punch? Geez Bourque went to the wrong class again....

You mean that heavily modified image of his arm to the point where his knuckles look like they were bit too?

And the video where you can see nothing but Pacorietty sticking his arm in Grabos face? Alright.

He was, and he 'sucker punched' Grabovski. Except its not a sucker punch when you engage with that player like Bourque did.

And if you watch, by the time Grabo engaged with Prust, Komarov had paired off with someone else. Grabo and Prust were trying to get at each other while only a linesman stood between. Pacioretty was on Grabovski's back.

Took his distance?

Imo, Bourque never really threw a punch, but he grabbed Orr from behind, ripped his helmet off and was in Orr's face.

You MIGHT get punched in the face when you pull that stuff on an enforcer.

I guess you can call that slow motion arm movement towards Orr's face a punch. It looked like Bourque was trying to control a raging bull. Either way, never stick your hands in a fighters face. It's always interpreted as a punch and will be responded to in kind. Especially by a guy like Orr who has to protect himself for the sake of his career. One mistake from Orr and his career is over (if he gets hit flush)/

Come on now, White's and Orr's incidents are two completely different incidents. White got slightly hit and starting whaling on Ott. Gionta and Orr were going at it a bit and Bourque came in like an idiot grabbing his head and challenging him.
