Sweathog Posted March 1, 2015 Share Posted March 1, 2015 I agree the Sedins aren't "soft" and are more tougher than people give them credit for. Definitely class individuals in my book. That being said, Sedin should've fought back whan Marchand was speedbagging him. Boston was up 5-2 with 90 seconds left in the game, they had the game won. Getting a powerplay at that point would've done no good. What was important imo at that point was setting the tone for game 7. And Boston did exactly that,crashing into Schneider when they didn't really need too, and a rookie punching one of the top players in the league that year.They were also firing the puck at Luongo during the warm-up, along with skating over the red-line during the warm-up. All that was to intimidate the Canucks, and get into their heads. And they succeeded, considering how the Canucks played in game 7. If Dank had fought Marchand it might've fired up the Canucks for game 7, and the result might've been different. I'm just guessing here,but seeing a leader of the team get clowned like that could've had a more negative effect on their confidence. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
