Julien would likely say to you over a drink, hey, we are playing by the rules. Don't like our game, too bad, change the rules, then we'll talk.

Not to downplay my hate for the Bruins (and the dislike for Boston), ultimately the NHL is responsible for their kind of hockey. Team owners know (or think they know) that the dumb fans will buy tickets to see more hitting. It's the sad truth. How many people buy NASCAR tickets to see some crashes - more than they would admit.

The Bruins players on the Olympic team (coached by the same Claude Julien) were perfect gentlemen, because the refs wouldn't allow the bulldozing. At home - bloody face here, concussion there, they know what they are doing.

Well, the Blackhawks won last night. The series is 3-2 Blackhawks. Now they go play the next game in Minnesota. I'm nervous.....

Habs tied w bruins. Game 7 tomorrow. Never rooted for them, but it's ABB now. Two years ago Montreal was THE smallest team by biometrics. Not sure now but still mucho smaller. Gonna watch that one!

Crawford has kept the Hawks in this game. The score should be 6-1 Wild. The Hawks are skating like they all have a patch on one eye.....everything is off a little.

After Shawn Thornton sucker punched Bruce Orpik (of the Pens) from behind, during an off time, then slammed his head on ice causing a concussion, I looked up Boston newspapers. Thornton made a mistake, by them, but he is an "honorable man". Yes, a quote.

That city is obsessed with the "Boston tough" crap. Their hockey team fits the mold.
I agree. I hate the Bruins too.

I agree. That's why I don't think the Stanley Cup is theirs this year.

But I'm glad they are moving on.

They have the talent, if they play their game. But when they run into a team that is overly physical and stands them up at the blue line it causes them to panic. The success of this team rests on the 3rd and 4th lines playing well.

Either way, GO HAWKS!!!
