last time we played Anaheim in LA, they completly dominated the 2nd period. Obviously the Stars have to play much better then that (and much better then they did in the first) to have a chance in this one.
You know it wasnt very extreme but I think Pronger should get a 1 game suspension for that last slash on Ott. I know it wasnt much but that is the kind of thing they need to stop. Its those kind of blatant hits like what Jack Johnson did in the world juniors a couple of years ago where he threw a dirty elbow at the canadian player as the other scored the empty netter. I am not one who thinks fighting should be taken out or the hits are too violent. But that slash was not meant to try to stop him from scoring. It was meant to hurt. I know Pronger is a goon and he wouldnt learn but that senseless violence doesnt belong.
I didn't think it was that bad, Class1723, but I see your point. If it was on another player other than Ott, maybe, but it's extremely doubtful the NHL would suspend a superstar in Pronger for slashing a goon/former goon Ott.
