And say goodnight, Vinnie!
And a big FUCK YOU to Ray Emery. What Emery did was why people want to take fighting completely out of hockey. He was a goon last night, plain and simple, because he is not good enough to play goalie in the NHL. He fucking sucks at hockey, so instead of continuing to get lit up, he took the course of action to get tossed out the game. And he did it by fighting a goalie who didn’t want to fight. Because it was a fucking 6-0 rapefest by the Caps and Holts would rather protect himself and his shutout than fight Emery, who was an amateur boxer back in the day. If you think otherwise, you simply don’t understand hockey one bit.
So you might be wondering, why did Holtby fight? Let’s allow Ray Emery himself answer that.
“He didn’t want to fight,” Emery told CSNWashington.com. “I said, basically, ‘Protect yourself.’ He didn’t really have much of a choice.”
Get the fuck out of the league. Just go. Perhaps the biggest scumbag move of all time. A hockey fight is between two willing guys. Emery skated to the opposite side of the rink to jump Holts. He is the fucking reason people think hockey all fighting and violence. He is the reason parents don’t get their kids involved in the game at a young age. He is a piece of shit and should be made an example of. Fuck Emery. And fuck this ref for not only not breaking up the fight, but not allowing anyone to jump in to help. Bush league shit right there.
So let’s see: 7-0 win in Philly without Ovechkin in the lineup, Downie is still in the hospital after getting his ass handed to him after starting a fight he couldn’t finish, Lecavlier out for WEEKS with facial injuries after he started a fight, and the Flyers as a team exposed as a huge litter of pussies.
