I never, EVER, get tired of watching the video or reading articles about that inning.

Gimenez: "It was so loud at one point I was standing there and my jersey was shaking. Playing in Toronto, the roof was closed, with 50,000 screaming hockey fans there. The was a great and cool."

Sure seems like the flip happened a lot longer than 3 years ago. At least in the United States it does.

Elias Pettersson leaves Canucks game

Plays like that piss me off. The initial hit looked innocuous enough; if it was high, it was close and could have been unintentional and due to the speed of play. But the follow-up of throwing Pettersson to the ice like that shows zero respect for a competitor, and can't really be seen as anything but an intent to injure. Hope the kid's ok.

You and me both. I like physicality in the game, but that is absolute horseshit. The initial check, fine and dandy. The throw-down is something out of WWE. Thuggish at best. Initial reports say Pettersson is feeling a little better, but not game ready yet.
