    I think this game will have a spark to it! I think some things will be in the back of there minds and could be brought to the forefront if the game gets emotional.
    I think you could see some emotion from Patrice and Nathan!

    I wouldn't be surprised to see both backup goalies play in this one. If I'm Boston, I already know TT is in their heads and I would want to save some tricks for the playoffs. In the regular season, it's only one game. Why remove that psychological edge?

    For VAN, it's already been said, but I'd be surprised to see Luongo in what would be the most hostile regular season atmosphere he'd likely face.

    Hey one-trick pony, is being anti-Canadian all you can bring to these boards?

    Do you dislike Bobby Orr?  Ray Bourque?

    The fans will circle this game in red on their calendars.

    The coaches of both teams will remind their players that this is one game out of 82 on their schedule, and that any player who ends up with a suspension because of their actions in this one game will be doing the rest of their teammates a disservice. 

    I would be very surprised if Rome hasn't already contacted Horton, to see how he's doing, and to tell him that it wasn't his intention to hurt him.  I'd also be surprised if Boychuk hasn't had the same conversation with Raymond.  While the fans would like it to be otherwise, I doubt that there's too much actual hatred amongst players in the league.  There's exceptions, of course (I doubt that Brodeur and Avery exchange Christmas cards), but in most cases, things are over-hyped by the fans and media.

    I agree; but don't be surprised if Horts didn't say. "OK I forgive you; but I'm still gonna kick your behind for taking a shot that could've ended my career."

    I also agree about Boychuk; but Raymond can't say the same thing because he's hooped. There's no way he could beat Boychuk.

    I'm not being a smart as$ 49; but every situation is different for every player. Each player has his own temperment & each player handles things differently. Most of the B's are thinking they got retribution of the Horton hit by winning.. However; what did Horton lose? He lost an opportunity to play in the last 5 games. Why? Rome knocked him out with a...I won't say cheapshot; but a late hit that was avoidable. Horton hasn't gotten his retribution. Don't be surprised to see Horton getting Rome. I say BANK ON IT! Then that creates the possibility of an all out war.

    Don't forget that Rome also lost the opportunity to play in the final games, as well.  I doubt that anyone would intentionally attempt to injure someone, knowing that he could miss the most important games of his life as a result.  I'd be willing to bet that, after the hit, Rome was thinking "come on, Nate, get up".   While I'm not a neurosurgeon, I'd also be willing to bet that most of the injury resulted from Horton's head hitting the ice, rather than from contact with Rome's shoulder.

    Back to Jan 7, this is one of those games that the NHL will be watching very carefully, especially if one of the players starts talking about "payback".  In such instances, they usually issue a warning to both teams about retribution, and heavily penalize (including supplemental discipline) any excessive rough play.

    I think "victory is the best revenge" will be in play here, and while there may be an extra shot or two after the whistles, I don't think it will get out of hand, because both teams know that Big Brother is watching.

    I agree with 50below, how can it be a blood bath if one team doesn't fight?  The Bruins may want to throw a few extra shots at Burrows and Lapierre, but those guys won't drop the gloves with anyone, so really, what's the point.  The best revenge is already wrapped around their ring fingers.  Playing the Canucks might be a big deal to the fans, but I would guess that between the coaching staff and the players, it will be just another game.

    How was last years game with the Habs a blood bath?  They sure as hell don't fight....but they did in THAT one.....probably wish they didn't

    What I see happening is guys from Vancouver poking and prodding and doing things to get Boston off their game....problem is, when you do that to Boston, it sometimes gets them ON their game.

    Sure you get under their skin and they end up taking a penatly, but the one sided beating you take ends up not being worth it.  Especially after they kill the penalties and put 6-7 goals up on the board and blow you out

    You think the Canucks are smart enough not to fall into that trap?  All it takes is the smallest spark.....and Maxim LaPierre is on that team......that guy can't help himself....think about it

    Oh I haven't forgotten that. However; who hit who? Who did the act that caused both players to miss. I don't think for a second that Rome intentionally meant to hit Horts like that. I just think that Horton will be out for some self gratification. He may even tell his teammates. 'Don't get involved, this is between me & Aaron. " Sometimes not all; but sometimes a lopesided fight can cause plenty. That's all I'm saying. Horton isn't a heavy weight fighter; neither is Rome. Horton is someone who can & will fight his own battles. I think it's OK for the NHL to give a warning to each team. Just because that happens doesn't mean Horton can't seek an eye by himself. I think if the league tells Horton that he isn't to engage Rome is WRONG. Bettman; Shanahan & Blake are not the ones who had their career jeopardized. I think Aaron owes Horton a toe to toe. Let it happen early; get it out of the way & play puck!

    Please tell me that you're not comparing the two. 

    One was a late, brutal hit.  The other was a freak play.

    what the heck? Blaming the ice for causing the injury, while where at it, i dont think Donald Brashear suffered his injury from Mcsorleys stick whacking him, it was when his head the ice. So if Marty got a raw deal, the guy who does the ice should've gotten suspended as well.

    Are you for real with that argument?

    I can't agree with you here Nite, i think Rome knew exactly what he was doing and i think Rome knew exactly what the result might be. What he likely didn't know was that a 4 game suspension came with it.
