I will probably have Zeb really angry at me for this, but the video above is from the Eastern Conference Finals, Game 5. Bruins fans want to be up in arms about Aaron Rome's hit on Nathan Horton and claim that it another sign that the Canucks are cheap shot artists. Great. Then tell me what this shot is. And of course Lucic slashing and then punching Burrows in the head when Burrows is on his knees is a sign of playing tough old time hockey. You want to get worked up on the diving that the Canucks are doing, I agree with you. But you cannot sit there with a straight face and say that the Bruins don't take cheap shots against their opponents. And if you are screaming that the NHL office is against your team in the Finals, be it Boston or Vancouver, because of the penalties being called or not being called, the video evidence tells a different story.
