I miss hockey season



Hockey season has been over only a week and I miss it. The smooth skating. The dipsy-doodle moves. The kick-save-a-beauty. The ... ah, who am I kidding. I miss old-time bench-clearing brawls. Of course we haven't seen one of those in years. Thank goodness for YouTube. Here's a classic from the late 1980s involving Montreal's Chris Nilan and the Bruins organization. And when I say organization, I mean the players, the coaches, the cops, the trainers, everyone. Give it a few minutes and then watch closely as Nilan is leaving the ice.
