And you know-he could have avoided that. Not like it was Pevs coming at him full speed or anything.
This team is going to suck with Pevs and Horton out (and not to mention Marchand if Shanahan decides to have a little chat). Caron looked awful tonight and now he and Hennessey (?) will be in the line up for the extended road trip. Team is in big trouble especially with the defense looking horrid.
Leafs with 2 cheapshots in 30 seconds. Armstrong with a blindside headshot on Hemsky and Komisarek crosschecks Belanger from behind into the boards, but you won't see anyone make a big deal about it on the main board.
Far more issues with a "hit" or "play" like Gill`s on Pevs, absolutely no reason for it, I don`t give a rats arse about him being a clean player, it was a dirty play, and by a vet at that. Man, stuff like this pisses me off, only a team outta the playoff picture, and our most hated rivals do stuff like this.
Those refs were gawd awful, both ways, but of course, being in the Bell Center, a little friendlier to the Habs, the NHL has a huge issue with an overwhelming abundance of underqualified refs, and this ain`t just the Bruins games here, it`s every game.
Refereeing isn`t easy, and mistakes happen, but it`s looking more and more like half of these jackwagons wouldn`t pass a rule book test, really hoping this injury isn`t more than a deep bruise to his thigh
So let me understand this.
If you are short you can never throw a hip check, even if you make contact at the hip with the other guy and especially if your name is Marchand.
That about cover it?
So if we go with revisionist history so popular now, was Bourque the master of the hip check or clipping?
