Do It For Horton.

7 06 2011

I’m not really sure where exactly to start about last night…but let’s get the obvious out of the way first.

Horton…oh, Horton. I must admit, I cried when I saw him go down. Not just misty eyed. No. A tear rolled down my cheek. It’s scary and heartbreaking to see a player motionless on the ice. S immediately went into best friend duty by reassuring me that he would be ok. (Thanks, S!)

Rome layed a DIRRTY hit on Horton last night. In case you missed it, check it here

Pretty sure I heard the Garden erupt from my house an hour outside the city. It’s never fun to watch a  player go down the way Horton did. To make matters worse, he’s one of our favorite (and key) players.

The only good thing that came out of that hit (if there can be any good) was the way the B’s played. No doubt they were doing it for Horton. The second he got carried off the ice in a stretcher everyone knew that this game was meant to be for the B’s.

Do it for Horty, boys.

An 11am hearing (face to face in Boston) will take place and everyone is holding their breath for what the league will do to Rome. Will they suspend him? Or will it be the typical “it’s the playoffs” kinda deal? If the league is serious about eliminating head shots, what better time than to prove that than now? I’ll be following Twitter closely from work today to see the outcome.

Now, lets talk about that sleeping bear the ‘nucks woke up last night. If Vancouver thought they were walking out of the Garden with a win last night after that hit…they were sadly mistaken.

Dude, maybe we shouldn't have hit Horty like that....

The ‘nucks were beaten (in every sense of the word) to a pulp last night and the Bruins showed them exactly what kind of a team they could be. Vancouver, you are the first to land on L & S’ Sin Bin List. We are not happy. Not one bit.

Way to grind it out, boys!

Now if only the B’s can play that way for 3 more games–but let’s not get ahead of ourselves. One day, game, and goal at a time.

Horton. We love you and hope you make a speedy recovery. We need your smiling face on the ice.

thoughts & prayers are with you <3

Now. Onto one more thing. I am NOT a happy camper. Not at all. Claude (for once) decided to change things up. I hoped and prayed the rumors of Seguin being scratched were just rumors…but they weren’t. Baby Seguin was taken out of the lineup to put Thornton back in.

And what’s even worse is I actually think he would have had a great game last night.

Put me in Coach!

By the way…S & I’s prediction of what time the puck would be dropped were wrong. It was 8:16. Darn. 3 minutes off.
