CSN Washington dot com here are the element are at NHL guy I -- first off no word on backe yet what what do you think should happen. What really when you slow it down a look at it it it was not a blow to the head the player was not injured he was unfazed. He even had -- enough gumption or whatever you wanna call it -- -- is while those older words and what the older guy famous so he grabs backs from by the advisory at the end of the game they have their strongly skate shop there's nothing wrong with -- the Boston announcers did leaving. Picked it up during their broadcast agreement with them that so there's mechanisms look by the way and until -- -- is Brendan Shanahan who ironically yes. Twice as many penalty ministers this guy right here. What to look -- now. What what's the big deal. Well you know what -- because the referees call the match -- with all the things that we've seen gone on in this series we've seen if things are -- penalties uncalled at the end of the game there's no way. -- should be a -- finally annual we've had bad refereeing throughout the series what just off side for the game winning goal. Kelly clearly outside -- not over Bergeron gets it about. Forty seconds later on this entry Chara scored the game winning goal late in the game winds and was standing right there in the blue -- so I can see a player for -- but it all goes back to this. It is that a match penalty Bergeron won a class of players we know -- fifth blocker to the face is out of Matt's been a block of the faith in the terrorists have often for a David Craig chief his coaches complaining about him getting a stick to they had no what just -- by Tim Thomas was. This is definitely a match penalty if it doesn't matter whether you hit them or not you cannot make that motion. Here last night. Milan Lucic ripped his helmet off takes a swing at his head. So it's time to time against Seidenberg. That was after the close lines of what the -- that's a two minute minor -- quite hear the end of the game a little bit frustrated goes over and slow this down and watch what happened. -- probably stick is up initial contact at the shoulder goes up -- unfazed uninjured nothing wrong right there they -- up now apparently. Grabbed him by the helmets are targeting the head around. So it's definitely a target that they are going after nick was back from future and then -- just play gutless refereeing by Chris -- right here. Jason -- -- gets kicked out looks like comes over now watch what happens looks like. There's human apparently -- -- -- the -- what you need to do -- to me along with teachers just give missed two minute minor set him off but what happens it will open up in the box together. And that's you know so it's not playoff hockey caliber as far as the refereeing is concerned. Clearly Boston has to know that injuries are any effect a factor here I don't know -- my -- you're talking about. Matt Cooke and and Marc Savard. Think they know. What the ramifications -- guy gets hit an -- to everyone in this league knows and then we all know that -- spectrum who missed forty games remember this hit on Matt Cooke gets to bark from across the middle of targets as head. That kid that played a few games after that but this is a couple years ago he never plays again he will never play another hockey game -- like people -- It's doubtful he will ever -- to this organization. Has been torn apart by that. Injury right there are so you've got really gotta wonder about the respect in the game what the officials have to do to protect the players and this is going on and on and on in the Bruins are obviously targeting. Nick was back to the head and the capitals probably need to do something about it but the most important thing we can do right now that's a playoff game a playoff series they've got to win games. You know when games and got to get done on Thursday night it's a big on Thursday that maybe we'll see Jason Caron and Brad Marchand -- -- it and again. We can assure that a pilot because it's dinner our kids are watching. -- you'll see it again I'm sure tonight CSN Washington dot com.
