    Yup, just as classy as the Montreal Canadian Fan's booing when they sing the United States National Anthem at the Montreal/Boston games up there.

    Although there is some hyperbole to your friends account, I have no doubt that it did happen some. Bruins fans, generally speaking, are - um - down and dirty. I used to work by the Boston TD Garden and there is a STARK difference between basketball fans and hockey fans. STARK.

    Not so sure, but bottom line - that was a dirty hit. Period.

    Rome is gone for the series.

    You just don't do what he did. Player is defenseless. Blindside? Looks like it me.

    Heres the play so people can judge for themselves.

    Looks like he left his feet to me.

    Maybe CanadaSteve is suggesting the hit itself caused Romes skates to leave the ice.

    I never understood the American fans mocking the Canadian National Anthem at games. The majority of players for their own team are Canadian. And that's not something that only occurs at Bruins games. I've heard it countless times at Devils games and they are a pretty tame crowd compared to others across the league.

    Not blind at all actually....sure he left his feet: AFTER he hit him, which happens quite a bit when you hit someone that hard.

    Keeping watching guys, and not in slow motion. He did not leave his feet before hitting Horton. The hit is late, but not dirty under rule 48. What gets Horton is the fall right on his head. Scott Stevens hit MANY a player harder than that.

    Canucks look totally discombobulated right now. Home ice should help them turn things around. But if they start Game 5 flat, panic will set in pretty quickly.

    +1

    And don't you just love it when you get a chance to use discombobulated in a sentence?

    With the Canucks can get the crap kicked out of them in consecutive road games, they are not worthy of hoisting the Cup. The Sedin twins being a combined -11 is ridiculous. Vancouver is playing small. Rome and Huimuis (sp) not being able to play is each their own fault. And the green men are ghey.

    Being a Ranger fan since 8 years old, the first team I ever hated was the Bruins of Orr, Esposito, Sanderson, Bucyk, Hodge, Cheevers, etc, etc. Yet here I am pleased to see the Bruins beating down the Canucks, a team completely unworthy of respect. I am totally conflicted about this.

    That's the Big Bad Bruins of my youth. Hockey will NEVER be as good as those days. LOVED that team.

    I remember when Brad Park came to Boston. I didn't know what to do!

    I'm a lowly Islanders fan.

    I have no horse in this race, but I'm pullin for the Bruins.

    A couple of Bruins bounces and they would have been hoisting the Cup on Wednesday.

    A couple of Canucks bounces, and the score would have been 8-3 and 4-2, still losers.

    And yet, they unfortunately don't have a 'couple of bounces' columns in the statistics...only W and L. And right now the W's are more on the Canucks side

    What do you think about letting Cory Schneider play game 6 back in Boston? I

    know it probably won't happen, but it would serve two purposes. First of all,

    Luongo seems to completely unravel when the he gives up a couple of goals.

    He did it in the Chicago series, and we've seen it happen even worse up in

    Boston. The Chowd-crowd has been merciless on him, which seems to add

    even more to his unraveling. Sitting out game 6 would also enable him to be

    fresh if the series does end up going back to Vancouver. He has played a ton

    of games this post season and, IMO, a rest would do him good.
