Today I am one happy camper. The Devils have already been knocked out of contention, the Red Wings are one game away from going down that same road, both our fishy friends from the north are battling hard and the lesser of two evils (that would be Boston) has a chance to ground the flippy Flyers.
Over at Centre Bell, the McFleury and Geno were on top of their games and the Habs drew a couple of dumb penalties that cost them dearly. The scrum at the end of the second period was also pretty dumb. It’s contestable whether or not Sid was trying to sell after getting whacked in the back of the noggin by Gorges stick (all the ‘Cindy Crosby’ haters will have a field day with this one), but Gorges made the stupid move of skating back over to the prone Kid.
In a later interview, Gorges claimed he was just checking to see if Sidney was okay. The on air announcers had an entirely different take on the matter. They were pretty confident that the words coming out of Gorges mouth were “quit embellishing!”
And then hilarity ensued.
Crosby got a good ol’ fashioned facewash liberally applied by Scott Gomez, Malkin tried to pull Gomez off Sid but was run off by Gionta, Chris Kunitz (never one to be left out of the fun) got into it with Hamrlik and Letang was basically sitting on Gorges head by the end of the dust up.
Ah hockey, ya gotta love it.
