anyone see the elbow little gave bolland? was it worth three games?
Little was retaliating for a run-in Bolland had at the other end earlier that may have been an elbow or maybe not. Nothing big but the fans were making noise about it.
Little caught Bolland from behind at the other end a threw a hit at the head that put his face into the glass. He got cut. Bolland also took a hand injury in that game. Pretty clear that the better players are being targeted for some "extra attention" so to speak.
I'd have to say that Little deserves the 3 games he got. He's a great little player, but he earned the suspension.
All I could see was this big scrum at the net. After it was over Rob got 10 minutes. My kid asked why and I figured that maybe he said something or kept at it longer than the refs would accept. Now we know the rest of the story!
Strangest 10 minute misconduct I can recall hearing about.
Reminds me of a time that I was at a game in Buffalo at the Aud with a boss who was really new to hockey. Part way through the 2nd period Patrick Roy left the net and went to the dressing room only to return a few minutes later. My boss asked what happened, did he have to go to the bathroom? I laughed and guessed that perhaps it was equipment related or something. Turns out Roy had to go to the bathroom.
Thats classic. I once saw a guy go over to the other teams bench during a stoppage, lean over and and grab a bottle and start drinking. That's what I miss about todays game, we just don't see enough of this in the modern era.
