There were a ton of good fights this weekend. Here they are in no particular order:
Owen Nolan - Love that he's still playing and fighting
Rick Rypien is fearless!
Not a great fight, but I love when the players take off their buckets
This counts a "loss" for Boogaard, right?
I'll briefly talk about the Ovechkin hit: You can't hit a guy in the numbers. If you see numbers it means that the player has beat you. Let it go. The only reason that the call (5 min and a game) is up for discussion is because the refs don't call it consistently enough. You want players to let up on those dangerous hits - then the refs need to make consistent calls. I don't know if Ovy should get suspended, but the right call on the ice was made. Shut up, Mike Milbury.
Heres a great pass from Ovy, from Friday versus the Lightning:
Pat Eaves has dangerous speed and Ryan Miller should really stop even thinking about using a poke check:
Formula for a great save = highway robbery + late in game x team has lead... as done by Halak
It was Ottawa's only goal, but boy was it pretty. Vintage Jason Spezza:
Steve Mason has a slow glove hand, apparently:
Heres a nice passing play from the Isles, to put away the Leafs last night:
What did I miss?
