morris stands up for his teammate getting flattened from a loooong run. i know he coasted most of the way, but he was flying. it was a great hit, and i don't have a problem with it at all, but stempniak has been phoenix's best goal scorer for a while now, so morris basically had to. morris domination, 5. (is this one hell of a series of what?! too bad about doan...)
Everyone here needs to look at the sticks, abdelakder steps on not one but 2 sticks, yeah he really got beat up. I would like to see someone here try fighting and step on a stick 2 different times. Guaranteed on even footing Abdelakder wins that fight.
Oh and Abdelkader absolutely killed stempniak CLEAN HIT
I love clean, hard open ice hits, those are things of beauty. However, that was a down right stupid (close to a head-high) hit right near the boards, could've been a really nasty result. That idiot deserved the beating he took, I wish he was dragged back up off the ice and beaten down two or three more times. In fact, he needs another one next game to remind him not to take liberties with guys near the boards.
Clear win for Morris. But I have to play both sides of the fence here. I like the hit, although after seeing the replay from another angle, it looks like he came in high, almost a head shot. And, with that in mind, I like that Morris came to the aid of his teammate and sends a message... I like the way he picked him back up off the ice with one hand...but then I'm disappointed at all the extra shots he attempted while the Abductor was laying on the ice.
