the officiating in this game stinks..you can obviously see Ponikarovsky trhow punchs at at least 2 players and get no penalty!!!! That also went back to the 1st period when Ponikkarovsky smashed Hnidy from behind into the boards..Once again a potentilay good game was ruined thruout by horrible referees
People who say this is a fight are retarded. Poni did throw punches, at the other player, with gloves on! Hnidy grabbed Poni from behind and threw punches at a guy who has no real fighting intentions. Hnidy is a joke, and so are the bruins as of late. The bruins commentators, once again, are idiots and the bruins have the stupidest fanbase around too. Nice voting homers.
*Edit: Masterofone, you just helped proved that bruin's fans are stupid homers. What other team hasn't won the cup in 35 years and still fills seats?? Umm how about the leafs moron. 40 years and sold out every game since WW2. Wow you must be feeling so stupid right now, its ok though, youre probably one of the smartest people in beantown. But thats like winning a gold medal at the special olympics...yeah you won but youre still retarded. Again, you and your bruins are a joke.
UWO needs to be slapped. Name another team that hasn't won a cup in 35 years and still manages to fill their stands. And yes, Jack Edwards(Ex-ESPN Analyst) and Andy Brickley(New England native, Ex-Bruin) do openly root for the B's. So what? NESN is a New England channel, and therefor only applies to the Bruins, as they are the only hockey team in New England. Stupidest fanbase around? You're a joke my friend.
If you give Ponikarovsky a roughing penalty, then you give Sturm a roughing penalty. There's no way that the Leafs somehow should have got an extra two out of that. You're just watching through black and gold glasses. Dirty play by Ponikarovsky for sure, especially considering the score, he deserved everything Hnidy gave to him. Even dirtier slash by Sturm though, if that slash lands any higher he's looking at double-digit games.
