Brown Hits Hudler

 

Brown lays out Hudler. Suspension?

 

 

Both sides of the story compliments of NHL.com

“I didn’t see him coming,” Hudler said. “It happened really quick. I didn’t have the puck for at least two seconds. It was kind of late, but there’s nothing I can do right now. Obviously, it’s a hit on the head. I don’t want to be out of line, but I hope (the League) will get a look at it and do the right thing.”

Not surprisingly, Brown doesn’t feel he deserves a suspension.

“It’s the playoffs, I want to play,” he said. “I want to help the team. I don’t know if it’s necessary to get that suspension. It was just a clean hit. I wasn’t meaning to do any harm or anything. I was just playing physical. He got cut from his visor.”

Hudler was able to return for the start of the second period after receiving several stitches, but Brown was gone for the rest of the night and the Wings got a five-minute power play — much to the dismay of Anaheim coach Randy Carlyle.

“I’m sure they’re going to say it was dirty, but this is a game that’s played and physical contact is allowed,” Carlyle said. “We timed the hit. From the time he passed the puck until Mike Brown made contact with him, there wasn’t a second that went off the clock. It was at 8:36, and the clock did not move by the time he made contact. He didn’t hit him with his elbow, he hit him with his shoulder. Hudler was admiring his pass.

“They can talk all they want about a dirty hit. That’s not a dirty hit in hockey. You’re allowed to take the body in this game.”

Links From Around The League

Alright, another busy day in the office so I’m going to post some links from around the league. It’s easy, and lets be honest, other people probably have a lot more interesting stuff. Getting right to it, I really  hope you were able to watch the Chicago Blackhawks eliminate the Calgary Flames last night. Unreal game and an even better outcome. Also, as evidenced by the video above, the Sharks made a first round exit thanks to the play of Anaheim. Also another great game with some huge fights. So, without further delay:

  • There are more videos of the guy breaking down after the San Jose loss here, here, and here. The original link came to me from Commissionerdangle, who has also informed me not to laugh because that’s the condition he will be in if the Bruins are knocked out. Anyway, I know these videos are kind of long, but absolute gems, here is fan dedication:

Loge19 on vacation

Loge19 will be experiencing a slow down for a few days as I am off to Arizona, for a week, and commissionerdangle (back on Tuesday) is in Aruba working on his Irish tan. I’ll be heading to a Phoenix Coyotes game at some point, and will post a little something about that. I don’t know if I will see them play Nashville, Anaheim, or San Jose. It all depends on what time the 2009 World Series Champions Chicago Cubs play, and how much golf I play that morning. As of right now I’m planning to see Nashville play Saturday and hopefully San Jose on Thursday.

See you soon
