And Milan Lucic’s high-stick to the head on Dominic Moore goes unreviewed by the league. Lucic is a chickenshit goon. What a fucking joke league discipline is - it’s nonexistent if you play for the Bruins. :rolleyes: It pisses me off even more since I like Dominic Moore (wish the Habs had resigned him) and it was Moore’s brother who had his career ended by Todd Bertuzzi.
In other injury-related news (the ones I’ve been more or less following anyways); Taylor Hall is done for the year after hurting his ankle in his first NHL fight. He was putting up pretty good numbers in his first year in the league on a pretty crappy team, and it sucks that his rookie year has to end like this.
Ryan O’Byrne is expected to be back playing either tonight or in the next couple of games for the Avalanche. I’m morbidly curious to see his face and what 100 stitches worth of facial lacerations looks like! In a display of badassery by O’Byrne, he played the last 30-40 seconds of his shift before skating to the bench with hisface all torn up (by Taylor Hall’s skate, as it happens) and bleeding all over the place. This same fact is a display of NHL refereeing incompetence, since play should have been stopped following such a severe injury.
And Goalie McSquirrley - Jonas Hiller - has pretty much been out since the ASG with dizziness and fatigue issues. It sounds like positional vertigo; I’ve had it a bit, and my mom and aunt are severely affected by it. It’s nasty, and really hard if not impossible to treat. As bizarre and weird a goalie as he is (which is why I love watching him), he’s also really talented and it would suck to have him out of the game due to this.
Habs play the Lightning tonight; if the playoffs started now, this would be their match-up. Could be an interesting game!
