Kadri just crosschecked Debrusk in the face for a clean hit on Marleau.

With his past suspension, he should be gone for the rest of the series.

What a stupid, cheap little fuck. Great teammate. Selfish move just cost his team this game.
I was hoping his knee was shredded on that DeBrusk collision. Knowing it was Kadri, no surprise he was back (and fine) to start the 3rd.

He's a guy hockey won't miss.
I hope hockey sends him off into the sunset with one of his own cheap, blindside hits. Knock his mono-brow into two normal ones.
Try to focus on THIS year...

Yup, to beat the Leaves you hit the shit out of them.

Weenies Willy, Marner, Tavares, Kapanen, Johnsson, etc disappear

... and the psycho Kadri snaps himself into his umpteenth suspension!

I think we all knew the Bruins were gonna be big & bad tonight, but that was simply awesome. :thumbs:

Not feeling any love (nor like, really) for Calgary.
Thought I’d give it a try. It’s not happening.

Old habits, I guess.

That kachuk would've been great on a line with Bo.

As someone that hates both teams, I really enjoyed the whistles being MIA in this one.

I'm looking forward to the fresh air around here once the fish smell dies down.

Same, but I got to admit I got a charge out of watching the Bruins demolish the Leaves :(
Great physical game

I don’t like Kadri whatsoever but I might want to crosscheck a guy in the grill myself had he gone after my knee earlier in the game. That was a dirty hit by Jake Debrusk. Give Debrusk 2 games and Kadri 4 or 5.

Yeah, I can go with that. Doesn't mean I want to take hard hitting or fighting out of the game, or even curtall it in any way though.
I keep saying get rid of the instigator and the rest will take care of itself.
They are afraid to because they think it will just lead to a fight fest in every game, but it won't.

This Pens/Islanders series has really been a coming out party for Jordan Eberle. Just scored his third goal (5th point).

Free agent this summer.

One thing that stands out to me watching these first round games is how nasty a team has to olay to win the games. The later rounds teams are too tired but the 1st round is all about being physical.

The canucks are not built to win these kind of series yet with their current roster. Loui Erikssons 7 hits a year wont be cutting it
Witchcraft... Oh, but it IS. A dark and terrible magic...
