AWard fires shots over the bow and will play in game six

When the doctors examined Aaron Ward’s face,  they “saw something in the x-ray” and suggested to him that he wear a visor in game six.  He said he never has, and he’s not about to start. 

He had lots more to say about the Walker incident, describing Walker’s side of the story as “a joke”.  He also took great exception to the use of the term “engaged” when describing a fight.  Then, in a very bizarre move, he played a political card.

“I know Jimmy (Rutherford)  is a pretty staunch Republican. I didn’t know he brought Karl Rove in here to spin it for him,”

Meanwhile, Bs coach Claude Julien has decided that he has better things to do than talk to reporters about the non-suspension.

“You’ve got to respect and accept the decision and move on.  That’s what we’re going to do.”

 

If this was the regular season, Scott Walker would be a marked man.  He might still be marked, but it won’t be the Bruins main focus tonight. 

For the first time this postseason, I’ll be going to the game.  I exercised the season ticket holder right of refusal on my playoff tickets, but somehow a pair fell in my hands for tonight. They just happen to be the seating section (112) where I’ve sat for the last six seasons.  Maybe it’s the work of the hockey gods.
