In response to Crowls2424's comment:
I didn't have any issue with it. Losing 7-0, show some life/fight. Not like they sent out a goon as a proxy to "show some life", this was Simmonds, Brayden Schenn & Lacavalier. If you are Emery, why not get some shots in too?
If this were the Bruins, we would be appluading it. Be thrilled to see Rask go down the ice and take it to Holtby. Be thrilled that despite the score, they showed some life/fight.
This board has turned into a bunch of old ladies. Good luck at bingo tonight!
Uncharacteristically dumb post... not one serious Bruins fan would want to see Rask fight (next you'll want Bergeron to drop the mitts too!) That is why we have Thornton, and if he's not on the ice, McQuaid (or Campbell, Chara, Lucic, Seides etc.)
Yes, let's have Thornton the goon fight all of the team's battles, proxy approach.
What makes the Flyers response so good is that it wasn't goons, it was real players that got pizzed off and fought out of anger/frustration. I like that part of the game because it involves real emotion, it is not a sterile goon-goon dance with some grab azz at the end.
Like I said, sounds like a bunch of old ladies on this board now. Especially for something that the same group would appluad if the jerseys were different.
