Adams Hit On Bergeron Today

via a Nick Kypreos tweet,

Indication from the league is the Craig Adams 5 min hit from behind on Bergeron won’t be enough to warrant additional discipline.

Adams received five for checking from behind and a game misconduct.

Bob Cole and Garry Galley with the call.

It was not a clean hit, noer was it from the side. If you look at the video Bergeron had his right shoulder turned away from the boards and for it to have been considered a hit from the side he would have had to have been hit from that shoulder.  Howerever Adams circled the exposed shoulder and hit from the left shoulder.  I understand you’re a pens fan, but that is an illegal hit from behind.

I think that if you need to use slow-motion replay from two different angles to support your assertion that a call the ref made in a split-second at ice level is wrong because, technically, Adams was a little bit to the side of Bergeron, then perhaps your argument may be on the weak side.

As usual the NHL has shown that all it’s worried about is selling tickets and not using their power for showing that they have a back bone.

For all Pens Fans!
if this was your your precious Crosby? what would you have done? Cried, bitched and talked super loud about “How cheap that play was”. and the other player would have been thrown out of the League, never mind a suspension.

Plus didn’t your boy Crosby not get called for breaking a stick on the net and almost breaking it on Jaros Face? This boy wins one Stanley Cup and now we have to kiss his feet at every play or move he does!!! NHL DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS CRYBABY!!!!

what’s horrible is that you guys are suppose to have class and yet ZERO worse then the CAPS! i hope we send you boys packing, Crosby can swing the golf clubs for the rest of the season

HABS in 6!
