    I think the fact that the player is already engaged with another Bruin, and has no ability to really see him coming or defend himself, is what will get McaAvoy the game.

    No worries.

    I do agree that it's unlikely them shaking hands will affect the decision by NHLDoPS.

    A few other things I noticed.

    The ref initially called a major and indicated Charlie was getting thrown out. After conferring they issued the minor.
    I also saw the trainer come to him and he immediately nodded his head, my guess is he asked him if he was OK.

    We shall see.

    He deserves 1 game and might get 2

    Anderson coming back to play helps his cause or it would be more.

    Bruins are the biggest revenue team/draw left in the playoffs as they were in round 2.

    League doesn't want the Bruins anywhere but the finals.

    To say otherwise is just wrong.

    If he gets more than a game I'll lose it. That's as good as kissing home ice goodbye

    Hes gonna get a game, and probably deserves it. He comes in from a tough angle that Anderson really can’t see. Anderson is already tied up with a puck battle. There’s just no need to make contact that high or hard. I don’t think for a second that Charlie was looking to maim anyone though.

    I’m ok with a game here. Would’ve liked to see the elbow to Backes get more of a look, but that doesn’t mean McAvoy doesn’t deserve something.

    Doesn’t matter. Next man up.

    So what if he was fine. So was Debrusk. Take off your blinds. Primary contact was head as McAvoy lunched up. Look at his skates. Having your head down isn’t an excuse to drill his head. God I hate it when fans make excuses like they do on the main board. McAvoy will get a game for it, and Bruins will be fine.

    I disagree on the ref part he simply pointed to the box in my eyes .
    I know the announcer said that on CBC but I think he was wrong .

    All of these “pearl clutchers” with the ability to have an opinion that is not just based on team loyalty is really ruffling your feathers, isn’t it?

    Yup, and Kadri got 5 games.

    Most people around here seem to think McAvoy may get 1.

    I cant compare those two . Kadri was a horrendous crosscheck. Stupid x1000 and nothing to do with a hockey play. Add his history and it was obvious 3 +

    I think he's going to get a game. It was a head shot, with no intent in my opinion. Glad Anderson isn't hurt, but I was totally fine with him getting lit up; he had been running around all series, and was right back at it in the third period.

    Did I say that?

    Its asinine to think if he gets suspended the league is against the Bruins.

    Foligino said it was probably the right call. Dom confirms it above. Should there be a higher minimum for checks to the head instead of a minor? You bet. Have there been much less that have received match penalties in the regular season? Absolutely. But in the context of this game, it was the right call.

    Now, doesn't mean he isn't getting suspended. But you never know with DoPSS. Department of Player Safety Sometimes.

    I think it’s a game suspension, but I’m still a bruins fan. I was rooting for Charlie to hit him again before the game was over.

    The easy call for the league is 1 game so I think they go with that (appease the rabid rival fans and the horrified Brian Boucher). The Bruins should counter with the Backes elbow. Each player were hit in the head, assessed two instead of five, and both players returned shortly after.

    Can you give me a reason why the hit that McAvoy laid on Anderson was any worse than the hit Khukin placed on Backes?

    I will just point out that I'm fine with that hit, not because it was a Bruin making it but because I don't want the game further wussified. Keep your head up, hockey 101, I don't know when it became the hitter responsibility to protect the player he is hitting. You finish your check as hard and as clean as you can, no elbow or stick was used by McAvoy, good, clean hockey hit 10 years ago and should be one today.

    Dude. Stop moving the goalpost

    You said if he gets suspended the league is against the Bruins.

    I have you 10 million reasons plus higher ratings and a bigger TV deal when this one expires as to why the league wants the Bruins in the finals.

    Stop asking me to make your behind black and gold glasses argument for you.

    I should have been more specific. It will give me ammo against people who say that.
