Posted March 3, 2013

    Dang, hope LaRose is ok...game isn't as fun to watch without him. I thought it would be Nash out instead. It was a rough game last night...expect to see more of the same in about an hour.

    I don't know, but I saw on Sports Night that they called the hit on Skinner "clean". Makes you wonder. Hope Rosey is OK.

    First Skinner, now LaRose with concussions. First, I hope there are no long-term effects for both and hope Rosey makes it back soon. Second, how many penalty minutes were assessed from the hits that caused the concussion (or possible concussion). NONE! Was at both games and saw both hits (althought Skinner got slammed into the boards twice and no penalties or suspensions were handed out. Seems like the NHL is inconsistent with their rules and how the follow them!
