If you weren’t fired up for the 2013 Stanley Cup playoffs, don’t worry, CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada will cure what ails you.
One of the highlights to their production each year is their montage to open up the playoffs and what producer Tim Thompson came up with this time around should have you ready to run through a wall for your team. Or at the very least run through a wall to get in front of a TV.
Highlights of playoffs past set to The Who’s “Baba O’Riley”? Yes please.
Capitals accuse Letang of leaving his feet, hitting Johansson in head
First things first: Kris Letang might get suspended for Game 4 (if not for more than one game) thanks to this controversial check on Marcus Johansson.
Beyond that, there could be some bumps and bruises from this contest.
Bryan Rust left during the first period and didn’t return to the game after blocking a shot. Brian Dumoulin seemed shaken up after an Alex Ovechkin hit in the third period. The Capitals might have a player or two to look at, as well.
In other words, the Penguins could really lack for quality defensemen with Letang possibly suspended and possible injury absences for Dumoulin and Olli Maatta.
This series is living up to the hype … and really building up the hate.
Yes, NHL is reportedly looking at Letang’s hit on Johansson
