Kukla's Korner Hockey

Afternoon Line

So it was once again Wednesday evening, the Bruins minced to pieces by Les Glorieux in a Game 7, their nerves frayed from the opening faceoff, their bumbling newbie defensemen dripping rivulets behind the ears, their top two lines frozen in time and in the futility of their goal-scoring ineptitude.

The final sight was a brutish, agitated Milan Lucic (0-0—0 in the final four games) jawing his way through the sacrosanct handshake line. The perturbed big man was a fright, not only in the utter incompetence of his production, but also his inability to abide politely by the time-honored code of respecting one’s conqueror in the goodbye line at center ice.

Lucic is a disgrace, Boston is a joke. Montreal is the real deal. Boston is a classless disgrace to the league and apparently sportsmanship itself ( their two series provided numerous instances of unsportsmanlike behavior that the coach never bothered rectify)

Avery vs. Brodeur.  Man, that now seems tame compared to this.

The thing about Avery, though.  I think he always knew his job was to be the shithouse rat and he did it willingly but complicity.  He knew he was in the wrong all along.  I think Marchand is the same way, but dirtier. 

I don’t know if Lucic gets it.  At all.  I think he genuinely believes he behaves properly.
