Yeah that was pretty funny :cool:

But imo, if goalies are to be immune to checks, they shouldn't be allowed to throw hits either.

Yeah, I agree. That play really, really pissed me off, especially coming from Thomas. Thomas is the type of goalie that wonders way out of his crease, purposely looking for the slightest bit of contact to catch a call, which he has gotten several of during these playoffs....most of the time he's the guy initiating the contact.

I have that in the back of mind my mind and then you see him steam roll Sedin and it's completely legit? I know by the rules it's okay, but it pisses me off.

I should make it absolutely clear that I have no rooting interest in these Finals and I'm definately not a fan of the Sedins...I don't dislike them like some, I think they are great players, but I also think they dive too much.

I've always been a guy (I'm a non-goalie by the way) that has defended goalies being untouchable when they are out of the crease since they can get injured if they are knocked over more easily due to their equipment. HOWEVER, I think it must go both ways, if they can't be hit, they can't be hitting.

Thomas is in the blue when he throws the check. I say that's fair game since you can't harass the Goalie in the crease, he can keep you (and the puck) out of it.

It's better than getting love-tapped by Holmstrom's butt and acting as if you got shot from the grassy knoll

Loved that hit by Thomas, was hilarious. But god, the game lost any type of class over time and especially Boston. I know Burrows is a biter and he should have been suspended but come on stop sticking fingers in peoples faces.

Also, why didn't Luongo just go sit on the bench if he wasn't going to try at all late in the game, really embarrassing for him..

One of the best games I've seen this playoffs. Hopefully Boston keeps this up in game 4. I think they still have a chance considering both games in Vancouver could have gone either way. Timmy has been playing lights out in all 3 games so they can continue to count on him, just gotta find their offense a bit more. They won't win if they don't tie it up in game 4 though.

Burrows not being suspended for the bite is just like Nathan Horton not being suspended after he threw a water bottle at fans after Game 6 of the East Finals. Stupid, trivial bulls*** should not have any impact on these big time playoff games.

I understand what you mean but letting Horton's harmless water squirting go is far more justifiable than letting Burrows off the hook for biting Bergeron, especially when you consider the NHL's laughable excuse of "There's no conclusive evidence". :blink: (And I was cheering for the Lightning of course like most Wings fans)

I doubt Rome will get suspended. The league will say they could find no conclusive evidence that a hit took place.

I'd like to take this time to congratulate Rome on scoring the GWG in game 4 :lol:

Well some of the Canuck fans in my neck of the woods have jumped right off the band wagon. This past game puts some of the Canuck fans back down to reality.

Late hit as well, hate to see that in a game

Got to feel bad for Horton, first off he went from Florida to Boston, he goes cellar dweller to playoff team.

That team goes to the playoffs, his first trip, and he has 3 game winners including two in game 7's.

His career looks to finally be coming around, and now he could be the next Marc Savard.

That was a severe concussion, think how long Crosby was out and his concussion was not as severe as Horton's.

Tragedy if this ends his career or derails it in any way.

Think about this Bruins team with Savard added.

I echo the sentiments that emotion and desperation got the B's through last night. But I am unsure how far that can carry them.

Van looks like a bunch of punks, they act all tough and then dive all over the place. They take cheap shots and act tough, but who was acting tough when Thornton was yapping at their bench, when Ference was daring Sedin to try it!

They Pussied out, Dats would have gone with Ference.

Well maybe not a real fight, but atleast get into with him like he did in the earlier round this year, throw a few gloved punches.

I know Detroit is not the toughest team, but they don't pretend to be.

I was rooting for Van, but am losing respect for them fast.

I'd say look how long Crosby "has been" out...he hasn't come back yet. But more importantly, how can you possibly assess whose concusion is more severe?

They seemed to believe that his headaches were a result of a sinus infection, not his concussion.

I started off not really giving a s*** about who one these Finals. However after it began I began to lean toward Van. only because Thomas is the only person I really care for either way on Bos.

But. After that mockery show last night to top off what I had seen the first two games out of Van, I think I might be rooting for Bos. now. I think I lied to myself about the amount of dives committed by that team; but seeing the Sedins flail to the ice at every opportunity, seeing Burrows flail his head back at the slightest touch; It's an embarrassment to Canadian hockey. Players like that don't deserve to win.

Then watching Aaron Rome deliver that late hit on Horton was the tipping point. He hadn't even committed to the hit until AFTER the puck left Horton's stick.

Vancouver needs to go to bed along with their 113 pt. season. As far as I am concerned it was just a fluke.

Probably the least watchable SCF in a while for me, which is also bad for the NHL if you're trying to market it. Maybe I'm just used to Red Wing hockey and am crazy spoiled in that regard.

All Boston has to do, which is really the only thing they are good at imo, is goon it up and they take the series. If they shy away from just playing physical they'll bow out in five like I originally thought. BUT, they throw 500 checks a game they have a shot.

The fan base for each team is equally as biased and annoying so that's a wash for me.

Good to hear Rome was suspended. It's unfortunate that taking out Horton for the rest of the series, and probably not having Rome in the lineup, really helps the Canucks. But there's nothing to be done about that. Just too bad the Bruins lose their second leading playoff scorer on a late hit.

What a crock of s***. The hit was late, that's it. No blindside. No elbow. You're gonna suspend a guy based on the outcome of a hit, nevermind the nature of it? Had Horton got right up, there might have been an interference minor called, nothing else. But because Horton was hurt, the hit MUST have been suspendable. Yikes, did Shanahan make this call?

Someone get stuck on a ferry again?

I'm not going to be around as much during the finals guys. Got asked to help out on another hockey board. It will probably take a lot of my time, at least for now.

I know you will all miss the absolute hell out of me.

And please be kind to my team. :P

Seriously Broken - get your own ******* life and stop worrying about mine.
