Ending the Year With a Bang
This year is ending on a rough note, nine fights in total last night.
* The San Jose-Phoenix game was not televised, so there are no clips from that game, at least for now.
* I had both the Washington-NY Rangers and Montreal-Tampa Bay game in HD, and clipped both in widescreen aspect.
* Rupp-Eager, from Dec 02, was missed previously and has been added to the videos page.
* Ondrus-Ruutu from the 29th was also added, completing that night, so there’s a good amount of new videos today.
I made a combined highlight reel from the Caps-Rangers game that included all the fights for the Youtube preview, but it’s been an hour and a half and Youtube is still processing it. I’ll update once it’s available.
If I had to guess, I’d say it’s about a 5-game suspension turning into an 8-gamer due to this being the second time he’ll be suspended this season.
It’s late, so it’s just the facts tonight. Just in case there are no posts tomorrow, Happy New Year to everyone.
Update 640am: Brash isn’t just busy on the ice. He keeps the newsroom honest after the jump. Thanks to Eric at Off Wing Opinion for the link.
Update 600pm: Brash only got a game, but Orr received a fiver. You can see Orr’s high crosscheck on Ovechkin in the Orr-Morrisonn clip. One might wonder exactly what Ward said to Brashear to get him to throw that punch, and one might wonder exactly what Ward said that Brash’s punch only earned him a game. Brashear kept silent last night with the media and after just getting a one game seat I’d expect that silence to continue.
To those who inquired about the Youtube video: it wasn’t done processing early-afternoon so I re-uploaded it, left it be, and it’s still processing. I’ll just leave it be and hopefully it’ll finish soon.
Update 950pm: Youtube finally finished processing the Caps-Rangers vid. It’s the current preview on the videos page and added after the jump. New Year’s a comin’. Go party.
