The Bruins’ Milan Lucic checked Maple Leaf Mike Van Ryn into the boards last night, and needless to say, body checks are 800 times sweeter when the glass explodes into a thousand pieces and cuts innocent bystanders. My God, this is what I’ve wanted from hockey all along.
Now, I’m not saying replace ALL the Plexiglass in NHL arenas with regular breakable glass. Just some of it. Like, at every game, have two or three panels of regular glass hidden randomly around the rink. It’ll really keep fans on their toes. A little Russian roulette never hurt anyone. Well, except for the people who get shot in the head.
