pilldoc Posted April 17, 2012 Share Posted April 17, 2012 http://espn.go.com/nhl/playoffs/2012/story/_/id/7823958/2012-stanley-cup-playoffs-washington-capitals-dale-hunter-says-boston-bruins-going-nicklas-backstrom-headThis has certainly been a very entertaining playoffs so far. So seriously what is up with all the rough stuff? I mean we all the playoffs are intense and the emotionals are cranked up, but this year it just seems like this suff is happening all over.1. Flyers vs Pens (we all know about this stuff)2. Nash. vs Detroit (the Shea Weber hit)3. Phx vs Chi. (Shaw gets 3 games)4. Van. vs LA (Sedin gets blasted with a hit)5. Boston vs Wash (Backstrom faces hearing with his cross-check)6. Blues vs. SJ (Pretty nasty stuff in that series)7. Rangers vs Sens.(Hagelin gets 3 games for elbow to Alfredsson)That is 7 out 8 matchups with alot of rough stuff going on. Only the Devils/Panthers series appears to be quiet on that front.So what is up with this years playoffs? Is it jsut me, but it seems like alot more rough stuff going on. I remember in years past teams tried to stay away from that stuff. Thoughts? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
