Oops.  Wasn't intentional.  What did I do there?  (besides inexplicably typing "hat" in there)

Just too classic.



Dorion says his son told him the other day, "Dad - your team's level of suckage is high."

I think avenging clean hits is The Code, Part Deux. Back in the day, as I recall, The Code came into play after cheap shots, when the unskilled went after the skilled, or when two tough guys wanted to raise the energy level by mutual consent. Fighting after clean hits, it seems to me, is a relatively recent annoyance.


Fight after clean hit (or it looks to me):

There is a separate 'code' for those dastardly Bruins, I say.


Oh, and those dastardly Flyers to.  GO GET EM, BOYS!!

There's a LOTTA context outside of that one hit into the boards. And it was a different game in the 70s, wherein teams like the Bruins and Flyers made it their business to intimidate their opponents with physical play and regular beat-downs.

Even by 1972 standards, that was a heckuva charge.
