Beyond that Bergy chance

Bs had a couple of monster hits on this PK. Ramp up the energy

Even if 1 may have been a penalty

Lindholm bring speed. Lauzon brings size. I have no idea what Moore brings at this point. May he have the game of his career.
I have a soft spot for Moore since he played the Finals with a broken shoulder.

Fuck Maroon... and Refs need to start cracking down on this shit or don't penalize the Bruins for taking it into their own hands.

I wish the NHL would be somewhat more proactive and more visible with their stance.

But what's them delaying the game one or two nights going to do? It'll seem forced, and pandering. I don't know.
I'll spoiler my take to not detract from the game

IMO, this falls even more on the players than the league for me. We're less than 3 months removed from this tweet:

That there didn't even seem to be a question of whether or not the game (played tonight by rosters of entirely white / white-passing players for the B's/Lightning game) would proceed is, in my eyes, the definition of white silence. I don't think the NHL necessarily gets a pass, but it's worth noting that the NBA walkout started with a decision by the Bucks players, and in MLB it was the Brewers players.

I don't begrudge anyone for thinking it's fine that the games proceed, but it just seems tone deaf to me. Hockey's usually a great escape for me, but shit like getting mad at Pat Maroon is the furthest thing from my mind right now.

Oh lord, lets see this shit. Maroon can slew foot and TB can take cheap shots post whistle but Bs called on everything.

Goddamit Ritchie. Lock it up

Come on... how is that different than any of the crap Tampa has done (including after the whistle in direct sight of a ref)?
