Except for that totally unnecessary penalty that took the Wings off the PP when they could have put a fork in Boston, gave the Bruins a brief PP which they scored on. It was a game, and likely, series changer.
Are you kidding? You should invest in a DVR if you're going to start criticizing players about penalties and whatnot.
I remember that looking like a huge bit of embellishment from a player that has a very long list of embellishing things..... I don't think a bump like that should completely corkscrew a 6' 9" behemoth. Nor the previous game when 5' 9" Tatar somehow mustered the strength to throw the same 6' 9" man.
ABSOLUTELY. And that's why Bertuzzi was LIVID. Chara skated backwards into him and their elbows connected SLIGHTLY- I don't even know if it was Bert's elbow or just his sleeve, it looked PATHETIC.
The NHL is going to have to do something much like the NBA, fine-fine-fine-suspension. Until that happens, captain embellishment is going to continue to directly affect games in a way that lacks integrity and displays unsportsmanlike conduct.
