Other Penalties: Hnidy received a game misconduct; Ponikarovsky a slashing; Marco Sturm a slashing.
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.
not close lousy camera
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.
C'mon...this was total crap and Boston's announcers act like it was a beat down...it takes two to fight for one to get beat down.
Learn how to speak before you comment.
Wow Shane Hnidy won a fight...............
This was not a hockeyfight at all. Hnidy´s fuse snapped and he ended up smacking helpless ponikarovsky. fight demands two participants
Similiar to the Eager/Parros so called fight. At least in that one both were fighters. In this one only Hnidy has dropped the gloves before. I guess it was frustration from having your team give up 18 goals in two games.
Don't two hand someone and expect to skate away, especially when the game is essentially over. Good for Hnidy.
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
Way to go Shane!
WHAT WAS PONI THINKING? MAYBE HE THOUGHT BELAK WAS STILL IN THE LINEUP TO PROTECT HIM.
We've been waiting all year for a w from Hnidy (well maybe not) so we good say Hnidy night to his opponent. Pony boy turtles, after throwing punches in the scrum. Give him the gate. In Hockey, it's win if you can, lose if you suck, but never turtle. Imagine Tony Twist or Probey being the disciplinarian in this league. Think of the possibilities.
As usual Euro turtle. He was brave swinging on Shane when there was a couple of mates between them, but Shane spent time in Anaheim and as anyone who sees the Ducks knows they fight. Hnidy is tough for Boston but not enough for the Ducks.
lmfao i would turtle too if i went out and cheap shot a guy and had him come after me lmfao (or maybe i should, have stood up to my actions just a bit.........)
Hnidy taught this fool a lesson for his slash on Marco Sturm. Welcome to North American hockey. Here, you get beat up for doing stupid things like that.
Poni is a bitch, if you're going to try to be a man and slash somebody , take your medicine. I'm surprised the refs didn't jump Hnidy and throw some punches
now he knows...dont go around slashing other players.
too bad the rest of Hnidy's game isn't as good as his "over the top" shots here.
I really didn't like hnidy with the ducks, but at least he sticks up for his teammates! good job shane!
pokihanius looked gasped,what a flake,he has the heart of a weasel.
hnidy taking care of busniss,clear cut win
Hnidy kicked his Ass all over town!
hnidy was givin' him the business. easy win
Hnidy dominated Ponikarovsky, I would've just been happy that he retaliated for Poni's cheap hit from earlier in the game, but then to go around slashing another team's all-stars (with two hands) with a few minutes to go when you're up 8-1 (at that time)? That's ridiculous, Poni got what was coming to him. But wait, if he's running around committing cheap shots and being an a-hole, shouldn't he be on the Flyers?
I think you can chalk this one up to frustration
That was a fight?
Ponikarovsky throws a couple until he gets hit by one then folds like a cheap suit. Should have been fight to both. Ponny a chicken sh-it!
Leaf bitch gets smacked down. Dirty cheap Euro.
Hnidy kicking some fairy ass.
Win Hnidy. Way to turtle Ponikarovsky
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.
