My Thoughts on the Pittsburgh Beat Down
When my goaltender gets knocked out by your back-up goaltender with one punch and your starting goaltender is laughing about it… I’m gonna remember that.
When you have a player on your team named Cooke, who runs his mouth and gets away with murder… for years… I’m gonna remember that.
When one of your players elbows one of my players in the head giving him a concussion knocking him out of action for a while… I’m gonna remember that.
The Islanders did, and Garth Snow did, too. Probably why he called up Michael Haley just for this game.
I’m not saying how the Islanders went about it was right, but Pittsburgh had it coming to them. Sorry to see Tangradi get hurt and no player should ever be jumped, but Talbot didn’t take it like a man and stand up and fight for what he did to Comeau so Matt Martin pulled a Bertuzzi. That’s the New York way, baby. That’s the Philadelphia way. Eye for an eye. Yeah, there’s gonna be a lot of suspensions, and they’re gonna be well worth it.
You think the next time the Pens step onto the ice against the Islanders, they’re gonna be laughing?
Not a chance.
Old time hockey is alive and well.
