This game was a total embarrassment for any Habs fan.
The diving began right away. Subban got hit on the side of the visor and went down holding his mouth (and, of course, laid there on the ice for a few extra seconds). Right after that, Senator Player bumped Price which sent Price down like a ton of bricks. Even honest guy Brandon Prust got into the act, going full Kovalev after a light tap to the GLOVE.
Then the fighting began. White starts hacking away and then gets his face punched in by Cowen. Neil, Phillips and Kassian also laid good beatings.
To get revenge, the Resident Throw Up Subban jumps Kyle Turris. Seriously? Kyle Turris? Was MacLean's grandmother not available.
Then Prust gives Conacher one to the head. Before Conacher can adjust his helmet, Gallagher drops his gloves and punches him in the face.
To end the Hab-foolery, Therrien cries in the press conference about MacLean calling a time out.
A very good friend of mine in Florida is a big Habs fan. Being one of the few people I know down there, we talk about hockey all the time and it's always Bruins and Habs talk. Over the course of the past year, I've really softened up on my "I HATE THE HABS" stance. Their players have been likeable (who doesn't like Travis Moen and Brandon Prust?) and their rookies are exciting.
After last night's display, I have returned to my deep down true feelings.
I HATE THEM WITH ALL OF THE FIRE OF HELL.
