Well it was instigating as Boyle got the instigator and the toss from the game. Kudos to Boyle for stepping up for the Shelley hit on Gilroy but Shelley appears to have hit skull with that one thunderous right.
Shelley had been looking to go with Avery who was after Zherdev. Avery thought the wiser so Shelley skated around and met Gilroy head on. Boyle paid for Avery's sins.
shelley with a beautiful hit on a pinching ranger defenceman, then proceeds to crack the skull of the oncoming cavalry. boyle had his bell rung for sure, one of those shots really stunned him good. looked like it might've caught ear. ouch. shelley and a 7.
the flyers should be happy that jody shelley is hot right now especially since lappy is most likely done for good and carcillo has been getting bitched regularly, not to mention richard's still not being able to take down dubinsky.. but yeah clean hit by shelley and boyle made a big mistake in taking on the menance. w shelley 7
