By Laviolette, resting Giroux and Bryz? Protecting, not resting? Possibly prescient, as they were hitting Bob most of the game. Or not - did he know Blysma had added McIntyre, and pulled his starts in response?
A statement by the refs? This one was even worse than usual. Voracek gets crosschecked into Fluery, Pittsburgh PP. Letang reaches down and pulls Jagr's stick away, Pens PP. And that Rinaldo call - those refs should be flat out embarrassed.
And Blysma- calling up McIntyre - gutless, makeing a statement that Lava was right last week.
I hate to think it, but unfortunately Rinaldo may have to be traded. One of the hardest, cleanest, most relentless hitters in the game, who apparently is not going to be allowed to hit anyone. Since he bring so much to the game with his style, he's being rendered useless. Just can't take the chance that any time he's on the ice they could end up shorthanded for 5 minutes.
