not only a pick--he lifts Skinner's stick as he goes by....how is this a multipage thread about a non-event caused by the person who seems to feel he is wronged on some way? If anything Patrice should be apologizing....

He put his leg behind Bergeron's, pulled himself and Bergeron backward. What did he think was going to happen? Not a slew-foot, but same result.

Bergeron has a concussion history as bad as they come. Likely why he snapped.

Luckily he wasn't hurt, or he'd have to worry a/b someone like Lucic turning his face into a catcher's mit.

Dumb, game was over and he knew it.

What exactly would you have had him do instead?
I would have him not dive. His dive is what caused the problem.

What dive?

Skinner tried to make a stride forward, and Bergeron was in the way. Their legs got tangled and Bergeron had his stick parallel to Skinner.

How much more self-righteous would the worst Bruins homers in this thread be if Bergeron had gotten an interference minor?

I'm going to say at least 2000% more.

That was a major league dive by one of the games biggest divers. If you can't even admit that then I have nothing left to say to you.

I thought the "kick" was what caused the problem.

The "kick" of course was caused by the fact that Skinner was not going to stop on a dime for Bergeron's convenience. He was skating, and Bergeron stepped right in front of him.

I ask again -- do you really think the onus is on Skinner to stop moving his feet when someone interferes with him? Because that's the ONLY way he could have avoided contact with Bergeron's legs.

I dont get it, did people not watch the slow motion part later in the video? (about 2 min mark).

Simply looks like Skinner wants to make a move towards the puck and Bergeron is trying to hold up Skinner a bit with his stick, Skinners loses balance grabs the stick and they both go down.

No slew foot, their legs do touch slightly but it as Skinners is trying to drag his foot under himself when thrown off stride.

Maybe he embellished, but also Bergeron is running interference...if anything they offset themselves...

Ask yourself this, if Bergerons stick is not across Skinners chest does any of this happen?

So the game is over, yet the concussion prone Bergeron chooses to go out his way to go 3 wide behind the net, intentionally causing contact with the opposing player with both his leg and stick...something doesn't ring true with this explanation.

Still going with that dive thing, are you?

I guess almost every non-Bruins fans are biased and refusing to admit that you're right.

You're funny...

What's with all this interference talk? There was no such call made. Bergeron is just as entitled to space on the ice as much as anyone else. I'm going to go with what Bergeron had to say about the play, since he was there and all. Not you guys lol.
k thanks

Yeah, Bergeron is not entitled to cut a guy off and put his stick across his midsection. That's textbook interference.

Wow, if you watch the replay in slow motion Skinner is trying to skate past Bergeron and Bergeron's right leg is sticking out which gets caught on Skinner's left leg, Bergeron's stick is also being held out horizontally to hold Skinner back which then causes Skinner to lose balance as his left leg goes out while it's behind Bergeron's right leg. The title should be changed, this is nothing close to a slewfoot.

I'll spell it out for you for the last time. Skinner = A okay. bergeron = career rat. Had this coming to him, even though Skinny Boy's play was a-okay, not dirty, definitely no slew foot.

That's not a slewfoot. Or to me a slewfoot is something intentional which this clearly wasn't.

You have never seen a mirror.

There are no grown ups in this thread.

I have seen two different videos, one is not clear at all and the other a little better. It is all in the angle of the camera shot.

Edit:

How is this for SUPPOSING?

Edit:

How is this for SUPPOSING?

To argue this incident we are able to only suppose what the players are doing or wanted to do.

Call them up and ask your expert questions.

Myself I can THINK what the players THOUGHT happened was this.

Bergeron is easily brought down (due to his bodyand stick) position by a Skinner push/pull/tug at Bergeron's shoulders.

Of coarse Bergeron THINKS Skinner slew foots him and he is pissed.
I THINK Bergeron THOUGHT the net would shield the referee's view of him hooking Skinner.

Look at what happened on the ice and what is happening now.

Everybody becomes an expert because they THINK someone else THOUGHT.
