Kukla's Korner Hockey

Part Of The Game

from Jim Kelley at Sportsnet,

From smashing players face first into the glass to ramming their heads into the stanchions at the end of the benches, we see players “doing whatever it takes to win” on a regular basis. It happens when we see players rammed from behind with six or seven crosschecks to the back in an effort to “clear the crease”. We see it when during the endless scrums in front of the net whenever the goalie makes a save in close quarters. We see it when players deliver a leather “face wash” to an opponent after the play is whistled dead or when others take exception to “clean hits” whenever a teammate is knocked down but then defended with a quick slash or a shoulder pad to the mouth in close quarters. All part of the game, eh?

So what’s the rue and cry about what Avery did?
