Awesome by Thomas. That goes miles for the B's. Ward gets hurt, and the GOALIE does something about it.

For the Habs, before you start b*tchin, look at your own team how they do NOTHING! Today, Mike Grier wanted a piece of Artukin(it's late and i dont care if i mispell his name) of the TB Lightning.... Grier would have gotten killed, but it was sending a message that you can't get away with hitting a guy after the whistle.

I personally found it pathetic that none of the habs did anything... and btw, when a goalie does hit someone, he is fair game... so don't fall behind that excuse. I've seen many goalies hit someone and then they get shoved back.

Anyways, from a Sharks fan, I only think more highly of Boston (they are one of my favorite teams besides the Sharks) and you gotta love sticking up for your team after a cheap shot was just thrown. Even if Thomas got suspended, which he won't, I'd still endorse what he did. It goes SSOOOOO far in building team identity and sending a message of "don't F with us or we'll come for you." I love it.

Those thinking that Halak had to go after Thomas I only say that he made the right decision by staying as far as possible away from Timmy, since he would have had his ass kicked in a way he never would forget.

AK deserved it badly! He's such a cheap shot artist, it's not even funny. I loved the reaction of Thomas.

P.S. Are you living in Basel, Switzerland? Anyway nice country flag

I think Bruins fans are just mad because everytime Andrei Kostitsyn plays them he owns their D. If it wasn't for Tomas yesterday he would have had a hatty.

In his young 2 season career 15 points in 15 games.

But don't even try to tell me the B's are knowon for diving
Marc Savard is one of the biggest divers in the league. And Wheeler pulled a magestic one on that crosscheck. Maybe they just have bad balance.

By the way, what the **** is up with Ward? The guy has to be the weakest little baby in the entire league. Anytime you hit this guy, even a light contact, he falls down like a sack of bricks and lays on the ice crying like a little girl. The "boarding" hit that led to this was NOTHING and it certainly wasn't boarding. He hit him from the side and Ward made his best Patrice Bergeron impersionation. The guy has the pain treshhold of a 7 year old.

He deserves much worse. I'm thinking of a Mclaren-like hit. What goes around comes around.

From what I saw in the game Ward was already hurt before he got hit from blocking a shot a couple seconds prior to the hit, so no need to call him a weak little baby or whatever for going down. Kostitsyn hits him from behind, but I think it was really only worth a 2 min penalty as he was quite close to the boards and it wasn't really that bad. That same hit was thrown at least two other times in this game, but no call since the guy didn't go down.

Also did see Komisarek throw a couple of low bridge hits in this game. Kinda disappointing having to agree with Bruins fans on that, but that is dangerous and can cause some serious injury.

You would probably cheer if some habs players get literally killed on the ice !

Oh man. The bitter Habs fans are out in full force. I guess since they can't crow on and on in the 'Can the Habs catch the Bruins' thread since they got owned last night, they have to grasp at straws elsewhere.

Good on Thomas. Team unity is a wonderful, beautiful thing.

There are many things you can say about that hit by Thomas, but "rocks" is not one of them.

And Thomas needs to pick his spots better if he is going to do that, 99% of the time that "boarding" call is either going to be a no call...or at worst a 2 minute penalty....Which means he is going to cost his team a PP by reacting like that more often than not.

I'm a very objective fans and I enjoy good hockey which the bruins have delivered this year..
Actually the bruins team is the most skilled team in the east !
I won't try to deny that.
And i dont effin care if we catch them or not ... i was pissed that the refs decided the outcome of this game...


Anyway we should play each other in the playoff again this year !

Oh.

The referees decided the game last night.

I thought it was because the sun was in their eyes.

If you had seen what Kostitsyn had done to Ward right before this happened you might understand it a little better.

Kostitsyn got a 5 minute major for his dirty hit on Ward

Thomas got a 2 minute roughing penalty for his slash on Kostitsyn

For once the refs actually got it right.

Hockey players rarely dives they either get hooked or trip... and sometimes fall down because of the ice. This includes any players in the league with the exception of Derek Roy and Sean Avery !
Isn't this the hab team motto?

Ward is a warrior. Canes fans will agree.

Jealous perhaps???

You do know that he left the game because of the shot he blocked prior to the hit? Or at least that's what they were saying on VS

Just an FYI about the ward reaction

As pointed out (and reviewed by myself on the play) by Pat Burns this morning on the radio, before the hit, Ward blocked a shot on the play and was in visible pain.
Hmmm...i wonder if that had to do with the fact that he stay on the ground, but yet played the next shift.

Stop being bruins homers and look at the play as it is. I agree that Kosti has had a few objectional hits in his career, but this wasnt one of them. The refs punished him because Ward (as per usual) stay down as if he was just shot, but yet was ok the remainder of the period. He left after the game due to the blocked shot, or a charlie horse, but the hit was not dirty.

Thomas reaction was chicken ****, and was more of a blinsided dirty play than kostisyn. At worst both players deserved 2 min penalties. I cant fault the bruins because they dont make the calls, but it was just a poorus job of officiating.

Thomas should have swung that goalie stick baseball style at that little ratfink *******.

Glad he was as tired of his borderline hits as everyone else was.

The beautiful part. It resulted in a 2 minute 4 on 3 for the Habs, and then a 3 minute 5 on 4 for the B's... but that's apparently what decided the game.

Puh lease.

Ah yer, and Komisarek was showing last night why he needs the **** kicked out of him on a game by game basis. Either that or he needs to take a class on how to hip check. Twice he went incredibly low on Bitz, and twice he was allowed to get away with it. Big man when Looch isn't on the ice... standing up to Marc Savard and all.

I believe it was a 1:30 4 on 3. and then a 3 min 5 on 4, during which Montreal took another penalty and Boston had a 2 min 5 on 3. At least that's what I remember.
