Blues vs. Kings - Playoffs - Game #3 - 1998

Here is the Courtnall - Storr incident:

Very interesting reading Kings fans comments about that game at letsgokings.com.

To be honest, when looking at the replay of Courtnall running into Storr...yup, I'm saying it...Storr deserved to get hit.

Storr leans out, bends over with his head, arm and stick to purposely get in Courtnall's way...and Courtnal never changed paths...he just went through him and made no effort to avoid contact. Courtnall was rightly penalized for the play. But let's be fair here...while Courtnall was wrong in what he did, Storr purposely put himself in that position to disrupt the angle Courtnall had on the defenseman...he was interfering with Courtnall. It wasn't simply a glove he waved out there, he stuck half his body out there to purposely get in Courtnall's way.

Courtnall's hit was dirty...but Storr's play was out of line as well. Storr isn't the innocent victim Kings fans make him out to be. He was trying to get away with something and Courtnall ran his ass over.

Turgeon was awesome.

MacInnis was awesome.

The uniforms need to die in a fire.

Rheaume on the power play: BWAHAHA! :lol:

Took me some time to figure out who #10 was out there for the Note. Good god, Soupy Campbell. What a collection of stiffs beyond the stars that team had on it. One of the reasons I have enjoyed this team so much this season. The Blues are so deep right now it is ridiculous.
