For the second time this postseason, an Eastern Conference series will get a long layoff while the Western Conference series gets a short layoff. That means no basketball tonight so you might as well watch the Canucks try to put the Sharks in a 0-3 hole.
On Wednesday the Sharks – Canucks game provided some non-hockey highlights that included a female fan flashing Ben Eager. That’s not all Eager did Wednesday. He also got into it with Vancouver as they kicked his team’s ass 7-3.
“In our mind anyway, he went out and tried to hurt our player, the potential MVP,” Vigneault said. “That’s how their coach wants him to play. He ran our goalie. I guess that’s how they want him to play.
“I mean, there’s really nothing we can do about it. We just got to hope that the people do the right things. … You don’t want players running around trying to hurt people. It’s evident by him challenging the bench, him challenging the bench at the end of the period, his coach saying that’s how he wants him to play. I hope nothing bad happens, because some people are going to have to pay for it.”
So there’s an extra good chance that there will be some good violence tonight. Isn’t that exciting?
