Bradley Be Bleedin’
Note to the NHL: The first period hit on Matt Hendricks WAS a penalty. It’s called high-sticking. The officials alleged it was an ice skate that apparently high-sticked him in the corner (or something along those lines). Replay says otherwise.
Another note to the NHL: Matt Bradley’s third period ‘boarding’ penalty, which happened about seven feet from the boards in Washington’s 2-0 loss to Ottawa, was NOT a boarding penalty. The hit was clean, and the player slid into the boards. Regardless, it led to a fight which led to another Bradley Be Bleedin’ episode which led to very lousy photos of my television, and the fight video after the jump.
