Im not mad about them losing. I didnt even watch the game, I'm out of market. I just saw the brawl
Yeah, the Flyers obviously got blown out. That brawl was out of frustration being down 7 goals. Its hockey. The Flyers pummeled the Caps in the fight department. It is what it is. 2 goalies fight and square up. Because 1 cant defend himself and fight, oh well. It is what it is.
Has nothing to do with him not being able to defend himself. It's the fact that Holtby said NO to the fight in the first place and Emery was like, "Protect yourself, too bad" and started punching him in the back of the head. It's even worse considering he has done that before and is a boxer. It's not right and I hope he gets a nice fine and suspension to go with it. Like I said, there’s a mutual respect in hockey, if you actually played the sport and quit pretending to know how the game works, you would understand. Hockey isn't about fighting because you are butthurt that you are getting destroyed 7-0, it also isn't about attacking players that don't want to fight. If someone says no, you back off and leave it alone. The ref didn't stop it because that particular linesman is known for letting **** like that go. There are plenty of other teams that would take that loss, go into the locker room and try to take something good from it, the Caps have done it a bunch of times. The Flyers however, they can't take a loss like men, they have to play like *****es because of it. The days of the "Broadstreet bullies" are over, this isn't the 80s/90s, it's a new NHL and having a team full of washed up goons isn't going to get them anywhere. Fighting has it's place in the NHL, but not like tonight, that just makes the NHL look bad.
I shouldn't be as mad as I am I guess but that is the dirtiest **** I've seen in a while when it comes to an NHL fight.
Varlamov to start again tomorrow for the Avs after playing in the Avs win against Dallas on Friday. He maintains that the allegations against him are untrue. I sure hope all this is just a spiteful, vengeful girlfriend lying and not truth. So far formal charges have not been filed.
Go Avs. Lets improve to 13-1-0 and take 1st place in the league.
