Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Adrian Dater of All Things Avs,
But this idiot also makes the following observations about the game tonight:
- Chris Stewart made a classless gesture after dropping the gloves with a 35-year-old defenseman and winning the fight, throwing his arms in the air. The Avs thought so too.
- Patrick Bordeleau was sent out on the ice by Patrick Roy later to see if Stewart wanted to drop the gloves with someone more his own size (and no, Sarich is not a small man, but not a heavyweight guy like Stewart), but the referees wouldn’t allow it. They gave Bordy a 10-minute misconduct. Now, I can see why this happened. The league is hyper-sensitive right now about staged fights and fighting in general, so they nipped this in the bud before something could happen. And I can respect that.
So, why did Bordy get another 10 minutes at the end of the game when Blues goon Ryan Reaves came on the ice to line up against him, to do the same thing? The referees weren’t good on that instance.
- Nov. 27 can’t come soon enough for me. The rematch with the Blues is going to be nasty at the Pepsi Center, count on it. A Patrick Roy-coached team is going to get even in the fight department, take it to the bank.
more and you can watch the "classless gesture" below...
