Maybe Orr's hands were too high on the hit, but probably not. Hardly a dirty play, though. And if they're going to make up a penalty where there isn't one, why wouldn't they go with roughing? Interference? Cullen had the puck! What's next? A diving major? How about an automatic misconduct for sending the puck out of play in your own zone?
Dirty hit or not (and it looks pretty clean to me), kudos to Commodore for sticking up for Cullen, and kudos to Orr for laying off when Commodore went down.
Not much of a fight ...win Orr there.....you guys that claim this was a dirty hit need to watch the video again....his hands don't hit Cullen's face....Orr's face was was cut by Cullen's helmet....therefore no hands blocking Cullen's helmet to Orr's face...as to the 5min major for interference and the game misconduct ..it was bull..the puck was just dropped by Cullen to his teammate when he got hit...where was the 2min for instigating on Commodore? Horsesh!t calls! Who voted for Commodore?
wow when scott stevens hits like that its ok ....not even close to a penalty the ref that was right there never even put his hand up.if stillman didnt land face first it would be a great hit..just like ive said all year round THE OFFICALS IN THE NHL ARE THE WORST IN SPORTS, THATS WHY NOONE WATCHES THIS SPORT. my bad i meant Cullen..watched it again he had the puck and hit him chest to chest..INTERFERNCE MAJOR?????? NOW IVE SEEN EVERYTHING FROM THESE CRAPTASTIC REFS
Sorry, hate to break the news to you Ranger haters out there but the hit was clean and the hands were down. The penalty was not for charging or elbowing but for interference which makes no sense being that Cullen had the puck. It was more of a open ice collision then a check. They actually collided heads and Orr had 3 seperate cuts to his face. They were teammates last year and you can tell Orr was looking over at Cullen to make sure he was ok even while fighting with Commodore. Orr is a tough guy willing to fight anyone but he has never been a dirty player. As for the fight is was nothing, Orr had no interest in fighting and seemed more concerned if Cullen was ok and the blood that was pouring in his eye during the fight. Nice job by Commodore coming over to a teammates defense though, always respect that whether the hit was clean or not. There will surely be no suspension here.
Orr easily. And that was a clean hit. I swear to god the definition of a "dirty" hit changes each time someone gets injured--soon it will be narrowed down to contact only on the logo. no shoulders! the padding in there makes them "weapons"! Bunch of pansy-arsed whiners.
Good of Commodore to take one for the team.
Not much of fight, about 4-5 punch by Orr, 2-3 by Commodore.
Orr lands one though.
Commodore went down missing his punch and Orr took over clearly as he would beat him if he wants.
A narrow win for Orr.
maybe clean hit, but i am not full sure.
You cant even hit hard in this league anymore WTF. Someone said keep your hands down, ya right! Ever try and smash into your buddy at that speed without your arms up you moron. It was a good hit and if the Hurrifags were not such a ***** team with Lavolette as the big ***** **** like that would not happen. But Lavo likes to exploit the fighting in this league by not dressing an enforcer and taking advantage of the power play. Well you suck Lavo and your team lost that game and morally your team is in the ****ter and I hope you get fired you suck ass.
Are everybody blind her or what?
this is not a penalty this is a clean hit! Orrs hands are to the chest and not to his face.if you look at the replays you can see that its Orrs head who knocks out cullen who has the puck and i canīt understand why he getīs a 5 for interference?
GOOD HIT who took bad thats all
donīt even think about suspension if so the league should watch every open ice hit in the nhl!
They call that a dirty hit? That's about as clean/solid a body check u are ever gonna see. It's like the refs were scrambling to make up some bullsit call just cause Cullen was laid out. Orr wins the fight which wasn't much but he landed 1 and then Commador basically turtled. Orr was paying more attention to make sure his buddy from last year Cullen was ok instead of fighting... Or we would've had 2 Hurricanes laid out on the ice... If they suspend Orr for the hit, the NHL has become a joke. The 5 minute interference major on a guy who was controlling the puck is a joke in itself.
