For some reason Boston/Montreal games bring worst/best out of each team.

I am trying to think really hard by can't remember when any fan of other team complained about B's players playing dirty!!!!

I remember we had couple of heated years with Canes, mainly because of Sean Hill but that is it.

Maybe other fans complain less? I honestly don't know!

Not really sure what game you were watching, but Begin was back on the ice less than two minutes later after the hit laughing and smiling...literally.

And this whole "hit from behind" is getting old... at best, it was a borderline boarding call, considering Thornton's angle he first came from. But it's pretty clear that he plastered Begin in the shoulder.

You can brag about how your team is better now than in 2002 but how about the Habs... Audette and Petrov are gone and Perreault isn't likely to play. So three smurfs are gone, replaced by Kovalev (he's semi-soft at 6'2 and 220), Ryder (6'1 and 210- grit and more grit) and Dagenais (6'5 and 220). Zednik and Bulis won't back down against anyone and can win their battles along the boards.

At the blue line, Souray (6'4, 225), Quintal (6'3 and 220), Rivet (6'2 and 215) can fight with anyone and Markov and Bouillon like the physical stuff. Only Brisebois is soft and it's not because he's a smurf (6'2 and 205).
I'm not to worried about Sheldon Souray For Getting Injured Again... he's had ONE good half season and Habs fans think he's the best thing along the blueline. I've even seen posts that go as far to say that Souray For Getting Injured Again is better than Gonchar. One good hit, and Souray will probably shatter. As Samuel Jackson said in the movie Unbreakable, " that's why all the kids called me Mr. Glass".

Toronto Fans > Hab Fans

I always thought that Toronto fans were the worse of the bunch, you Hab fans are really starting to make Toronto fans look good.

The truth hurts doesn't it? Thornton is a dirty player. It's not our fault

I was at the game... It was a dirty hit. and because Begin wasn't hurt seriously ur telling me he faked it at first? ok... thats ur opinion. He didn't hit him in the shoulder though, that's bs...

I'd consider Thornton a dirty player, but that doesn't change the fact that he's one of the best in the game, heck, come playoff time it probably just makes him better. As for Begin, the guy's got a ton of heart and pride, he did not dive on the hit. To see fellow Habs fans whining about the Bruins being dirty is kind of embarressing, this is hockey here, and it's the playoffs, you do what it takes to win, regardless of whether or not it's dirty.

I'd also like to note that Souray has had more than one good half a season, he had an amazing playoff series aswell Against your very own Bruins, with a broken wrist at the time I might add... He obviously doesn't have the offensive talent of Gonchar, but even as underrated defensively as Sergei is, Souray has the edge when it comes to his own end.

Now for the guy who had that amazing rumour, the Bruins have a real #1 goalie now... I'm pretty sure Byron Dafoe was supposed to be one of the league's top goalies back in 02... With his 35 wins, 2.21 GAA and .907 SV% he really wasn't far off golden boy Raycroft's numbers this year. Regular season means squat, you don't have a real #1 goalie until Raycroft proves it. I have no doubt he'll one day become a playoff proven goalie, but seriously, he hasn't proven it yet. So bring it on

Here's to a hard fought series, with as little whining about refereeing or cheap shots as possible.

Wow, I am amazed at this thread. Are there Vision Worlds in Montreal? Oh well, I guess Joe was on the grassy knoll too.

Here's hoping Joe beats the Habs on the scoreboard all series and then in game six when the series is wrapped up shuts Begin's mouth for him.

Haven't seen a hockey player worth a damn that didn't have a dirty streak to him.

Oh, what's his name, that got suspended for attacking a guy in the playoffs and causing rioting in some French Canadian shanty.

OH, Maurice Richard! That's the ticket. Boy he was the poster boy for clean play! :lol

I was at the game as well. It was a shoulder-to-back-of-shoulder hit. Begin rolled into the boards for the faceplant and Oscar-worthy acting job afterward. You may as well just deal with it. You may get wild and enthusiastic support for your claim of a 'dirty hit' on the Habs board, but it's highly unlikely you'll get any agreement from any B's fan on this board.

The Rocket went to his grave claiming innocence on that one. It actually happened with about a week to go in the season, against the damn Bruins. He was fighting Hal Laycoe when [and there have been conflicting accounts] Laycoe got loose for a punch when the linesman had Richard tied up.Richard then apparently slugged the official. He claims to have swung at Laycoe and didn't know what happened. I suspect that after the punch, Richard lost it, as he was well known for doing. There were stories of Richard breaking sticks over Laycoe in retaliation for something, but I don't know, this occurred around the time of my conception. Richard was hated in the league office as he was known for avenging cheap shots. As a top scorer, I'd imagine he faced a lot of abuse and settled his own battles. When this happened, 5 league owners told Campbell, it was time to teach this guy a lesson. The riot occurred when he got the same suspension as Bertuzzi. On a side note, the Habs didn't win it without him, but won the next 5.
I've thought for awhile that part of Thornton growing into a leader would be some controlled emotion, and I suspect that a lot of you agree with that.
Like or hate the comments going back and forth, at least we all care. You think the Tampa/NYI fans are going tooth and nail like this ?

Richard was a fierce warrior that policed his own game. There's nothing wrong with that. Infact hockey's gone downhill in my opinion since the league no longer allows guys to police themselves.

Hell, You guys had Chris Nilan, A Boston boy!, that was as dirty as it comes so remember your own history and stop whinning.

I could tell you Nilan stories to fill a book, few of them board suitable. I was told that the contracter who built Nilan's house in Mtl. was a Bruin fan and left out the insulation on one side of the house. No idea, if it was true, but that's what I was told.

Hab fans, beware of the "quiet" ones. Muzz and Knuble may not be a fighters nor dirty players, but if Begin goes through with his cheerful threat, Muzz and Knuble could very well suprise both Boston and Montreal fans and go loco on him.

Gotta Love This

Well, I wont get into the rhetoric, I`ll just stick to opinions:

1. Thornton isnt a cheapshot artist, although he is known to use his stick from time to time.

2. Begin isnt a diver or cheapshot artists....just a tough kid who knows he has a job to do, Like Thornton, will use his stick from time to time.

3. Nobody knows if Begin "faked" anything. If he did, it is without question FAR outr of his character, though it appeared to us that he may have.

4. Thornton didnt try to hurt Begin, though it appeared at the time that he did.

5. Begin will try to do his best Madden job on Thornton.

6. I hope like heck that Lapointe isnt matched up with Begin...we need Marty in other situations than "policing" the opponents checking line forwards.

I agree on all points.

The only thing that I'd add is that Joe must be able to play through any distractions.

If the B's hope to advance, Joe (and several others) have to bring their "A" game

You know the thing that is really stupid is that Rolston said nothing boastful or provocative, nor did Begin say anything threatening. Everything's gone tabloid though. A Montreal radio guy was talking about it. If a reporter asks a player if he beats his children and the player answers in the negative, you have the headline,'------------ denies beating his children'
