Okay, so I might have had too much Saki tonight, maybe I just love watching the destruction of the Penguins and Islanders.
I feel like every Ranger fan should see this, and LOVE every single moment of it.
Suspensions handed out:
Eric Goddard – 10 Games (For leaving bench and going to “aid” of teammate)
Trevor Gilles – 9 Games
Matt Martin – 4 Games (For sucker punch to Maxim Talbot [biggest p*s$y in the NHL])
and a $100,000 fine to the team.
Colin Campbell was completely unbiased in his sentences. NOT.
To quote the VP of Garbage:
“The actions by the Islanders’ Gillies and Martin were deliberate attempts to injure by delivering blows to the head of players who were unsuspecting and unable to defend themselves,” said Campbell. “The message should be clear to all players: targeting the head of an opponent by whatever means will be dealt with by suspension.
“With respect to the Godard suspension, there can be no circumstance that allows for a player to leave his bench for the purpose of coming to the aid of a teammate.
“The Islanders also must bear some responsibility for their failure to control their players,” Campbell added.
Ahhh, the destruction of two enemies equals the glory of our own team that much better.
