Tuesday night's game -- if you want to call it that -- between the Bruins and Carolina Hurricanes got ugly. I mean that really got out of hand fast. It was so bad, even Boston coach Claude Julien was tossed. The only thing that could have made it more crazy would have been a goalie fight, but Cam Ward turned down Tuukka Rask's dance proposal.
Also thrown in the mix was Seidenberg's hit on Hurricanes young star Jeff Skinner in the third period.
I feel for Seidenberg a bit on this play. Skinner, as talented a skater and as creative as he can be, doesn't always do what you expect him to. In this example, you're assuming Skinner is going to continue skating around the end boards, right? Instead he flips the back back toward the slot with a backhand shovel and now Seidenberg is crawling up his back.
At the same time, I also understand why the Hurricanes would be a bit upset. You have to protect your skill players and any affront, clean or not, needs to be dealt with.
Much the same as Kris Letang's hit that earned him a two-game suspension, that's where I'd expect this one to come donw. Although there has been no word yet of even a scheduled meeting for Seidenberg, with the way things are going, I'd expect one.
