I agree. (That's what I meant by "even more.")

Two games with the Caps and two cheap boarding incidents that cost us a DMan for significant (one would assume with KMiller) time.

If that were the Bruins of post 2011 they'd have been neutered by the League by now.

Get well soon KMiiller.

Don't think that is true at all.

Not sure if that hit injures anyone who doesn't already have a bad shoulder. No blow to the head, probably only a 2 minute penalty if it wasn't Miller.

Watch the replay. All Ovi sees are Kevins numbers. He doesn't let up at all. If this was ANY other player besides the NHL's poster boys that would have been a match penalty for attempt to injure.

I agree that k Miller has been playing better as of late. Hopefully it isn't as bad as it looked. As for your comment on ovi ATTEMTING And SUCCEEDING to injure him leads me to believe that you think ovi wanted him to get injured after the check. I don't buy it. Stupid play but I've seen a lot worse and it looked to me that ovi felt bad after. fwiw he still needs to be held accountable for a bad check.

He didn't appear very remorseful in the post game when he called it a hockey play, despite seeing Miller's numbers the entire time. At his size any illegal hit is extra dirty.

Plenty of knee on knees and dirty hits shows he is a very reckless player. I like how he plays but every time he crosses the line is cringeworthy.

Essentially Ovechkin absolved himself of all responsibility by claiming it wasn't as though he headhunted Miller.

Only 1 RH shot in the grouping likely means that the other Miller is getting called up.

Other playoff RH options are:
Trotman (Blah)
Chudinov... knock on wood
Carlo ... available in a few weeks. Long shot.
O'Gara
Ok. That I'm fine with.

I don't think that AO was trying to injure Miller, but that's really not an excuse. It was a textbook board that resulted in a (significant?) injury to another player. It doesn't matter what the intent was IMO. If you look at AO's hits over the years, there is a lot of them that are "dirty". The excuse is always that he's just "playing the game hard" and "he didn't mean to hurt the guy". Bergeron plays the game hard every night and you don't see hits like that from him.

Recklessness and stupidity are not excuses for hits like this.

Many of the arguments on the main board revolve around Ovi doing the dignified thing and 'letting up' before he hit him. Ovi 'letting up' is akin to a freight train hitting the brakes 50 metres before it annihilates whatever is in it's path. He'd built up a good head of steam, and when you watch it in real time from the rear angle you get a feel for just how heavy the hit was.

I said it to my fiancee and friend while watching the game last night, and I'll say it again here. That hit was completely out of line, and the fact that it resulted in an injury makes it even worse. It wasn't one of those hits where the guy turns at the last second and gets boarded. Ovi saw his numbers the entire way, and drove him into the boards, and that's the problem.

Yeah he wasn't targetting the head or anything, but it's still malicious as hell and frankly deserved to be a game misconduct, and suspension. That's not a "hockey play", and players need to be held accountable for that stuff.

What's hysterical that many, like Felger, were saying "Oh they aren't even a playoff team, why didn't they sell?? Wait until they play CHI and WAS this week they are going to get 'porked'".

This is right on to me except he plays a way more physical game than bergy so I would use a better player example. I am sure he didn't try to hurt him and actually let up in the slightest but he had plenty of time to pull off this hit. If it was rinaldo on Crosby he would get 15 games. Kevan did turn so if he was closer I could give ovie a break but he knew he couldn't hit him there like that

Later on, when Chara got the "rough" trying to avoid an Ovechkin hit, I counted the steps. He took 6 strides before he "coasted" in to the check. This type of thing is routine for AO. If he got a few more sticks in the chops, maybe he would think twice about the charge.

who`s elated? Tired or otherwise, can`t deny the talent on both rosters, and in the Hawks and Caps game, really appreciated the way the B`s forced the play often to the perimeter.

Still won`t convince me the Caps wouldn`t steamroll our boys in a series but also won`t hammer the boys for doing a good job

The guy played rest of game and Bruins did nothing.He should have been asked to fight multiple times.Right in his face and challenge him.Make him fight or be seen as a coward.I agree he saw Millers numbers entire way.Slimy play and again league does nothing.

Don't agree with that. Part of defense is keeping the puck in the offensive zone and making plays in the defensive and neutral zones to get the puck in the offensive zone. Colin is much better in those areas and that's why his possession numbers are better.

Check the zone starts, though.

Trotman will most likely draw back in.

Chara/McQuaid
Krug/Seidenberg
Liles/Trotman
