Hits Keep Coming

From John Niyo at the Detroit News,

...afterward Maxime Talbot talked about looking into the 42-year-old Roberts’ eyes “and you’re kind of scared, you know, like, ‘Oh, my God, that guy’s intense!’ ”

“He certainly has provided a spark and some energy,” Cleary admitted. “He’s a gritty guy and he was a big influence on that winning goal. But we have guys that’ll hit and get in there and get dirty, too.”

One of those guys, Dallas Drake, was on the receiving end of a pair of Orpik’s hits in that highlight-reel shift Wednesday. Drake, though, had a shift just like it in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals, and tonight he’ll undoubtedly look to introduce himself to his old friend, Mr. Roberts.
