Do you think Daniel Alfredsson was aiming at the Ducks captain near the end of the second period?
Could this play be a turning point for the Ducks? Will it give them any extra motivation to finish off the Senators at home in Anahiem?
Have your say in our forum.
Alfredsson looked at the clock before shooting, tried to shoot around what's his face and hit Nieder (an awesome defence). Did he do it on purpose? Who cares, I've seen guys shoot the puck at other people before where there was no doubt, here only Alfredsson really knows and it's not a big deal.
Lets just watch another boring game or possibly two and this lame run will be over.

There needs to be harsher punishments for selfish, cowardly acts of violence, PERIOD!!

As for "Alfie"... Not much to say there. A little surprized to hear people such as Don Cherry and Brian Murry jump to his defense saying things like... "not in his nature, he would never do it on purpose" etc.. This guy has a long rap sheet of cheap shots, stick fouls and the like. He is one of the dirtiest palyer in the league and has been for years. Even now, when he is having an MVP quality playoff run, he comes up with this. Classless!!! Classless but typical Alfredsson!!!

now to get to the officiating...Dan O'Halloran used to ref in the AHL, how and why he got promoted we will never know. He is a lousy ref and generally has no idea what is going on on the ice.
This has been a long season, but as a fan of the Portland Pirates, the Ducks AHL team, I am very proud of the games that our boys are playing. LETS GET IT DONE

Of course Alfie was aiming for Niedermayer. He lost his cool big deal... if you watch any of the season players lose it once in a while just like you. As for the officiating it sucks. They sent players to the penalty box in droves thru the whole season and most of the playoffs up until the final. Watching Cherry and Hull on the NBC interview last night was the low part of the night.
