I'll give it to Lovejoy because (1) he scored his first NHL goal in the second period (2) he was named first star of the game (3) he took a puck in the face for stitches near the end of the game that I'm sure hurt more than this tussle with Matthias (4) he got a nice between periods interview on the Pens telecast.
Not a bad early Christmas present.
bradyj4--I dunno what the goal, first star, interview, and stitches have to do with the win. Maybe I voted for Ben Lovejoy because he has a porn star name. (-:
well matthias definitely lands more, but the reverend doesn't seem too worse for the wear when its all said and done. good to see them both lobbing the hamhocks instead of the jersey jabs or the tender cuddles. nice job fellers. matthias and a 6er.
Matthias with the edge in s nice scrap. Lots of punches, but a few solid rights by each guy until Lovejoy ands on top of Matthias. Pittsburgh has added grit the last couple years, they used to be the Redwings of the Eastern Conference with few fights and high skill.
