Krejci makes a couple big hits in the game (on ovi i believe on at least one occasion)

bruins win in OT off Chris Kelly's goal

Krejci gets hit with pane of glass as fans celebrate the win

Ovi gets last laugh

Not only that, most of them were not even wearing blue or white. I know it was raining yesterday, but for fuck sakes, take off you black jackets cause all I saw in the stands were people wearing jackets not cheering. Lots of black areas in the stands.
CBC's feed is very shitty compared to SN or TSN. I hate HNIC because the blue colours and sound are all fucked up.

Many wore Canucks jerseys I am sure. The cheering is not as loud because they toned down the crowd volume. Watching almost every regular season game I started to tell the difference between a weekday game and a HNIC game. Plus the Broco Autoglass and Budget B&B ads are just awful.

I think it's been like that all season.

As for diving and frying to draw penalty.. Why do we want to be on PP when no one can gain the zone or sustain good pressure 5v4? Whenever theres PP, first thing comes into mind is please no SHG.

David Krejci Gets Hit By Pane of Glass (April 12th 2012 Playoffs) - YouTube

Would of been better if the glass hit Thomas or Marchand.

All teams in playoffs get money...The money increases as the team advances. The money is split between all the players. Is it a lot? No, but the bigger names get bonuses anyway and, really, playoffs is a situation in which a player can really make a name for himself and end up receiving huge pay-raises...but all this is besides the point.

I don't admire them for being able to do that...If I was getting paid millions of dollars by my team and playing for an even bigger contract in the future, I would make sure I have that kind of conditioning and stamina as well....Do I envy them? For sure, but I definitely don't admire them for being able to do so. For millions of dollars, I'll work on my conditioning all day too....that's expected...

Regarding money earned in the playoffs I found this online. Mind you it is from 1998. I'm guessing the figures are a bit higher. It also mentions that the winners of the Presidents Trophy also get money.

It also mentions that division winners get money as well, so I'm guessing conference winners would get some as well...nice find btw.

Wait, it's Kesler... so yes, absolutely sure it was embellished.

I would like to think players are getting paid for everything, even if not directly.
Most people calculate their salary just based on how many games they play, how many shifts they play, etc.
Without thinking about all the practices they have to go through,
and all the other stuff they have to do outside of practices,
like keeping fit year round (or most of the year anyway).
And I'm sure the best players can't rely on just official team practices to get better.
They gotta go practice on their own, especially in the summer.

If it's just based on conditioning (not hockey skills),
it's not that hard to make it your day job to just go work out and train all day if you're getting paid millions of dollars.
Most of us wouldn't invest that time cause it's just a "waste of time", and our career doesn't revolve around it.
Actors do it all the time to bulk up or slim down by hiring personal trainers to prepare for their roles.
And they're pretty much getting paid to do that, since it's for a movie.
(I'm comparing body built for image vs pro athlete conditioning here, but same principle)

And if you're getting paid to play competitive hockey, you'll probably be pretty good over a period of time.
Not necessarily NHL level, but I wouldn't be surprised if you end up pretty damn good.
