Call them what you will.
Cheap shot artists.
The Boston Bruins have had their fair share of run ins with gutless and spineless opponents over the past 30 years. These players don’t fight with their fists like real men, but creep around the corner and run players from behind.
They probably started rumors as children to start fights in school or got their siblings in trouble for taking cookies from the cookie jar. They pulled your hair and if you retaliated, your parents would punish you instead.
To put it mildly, they are rats. They won’t go toe to toe with the enforcers of the league; instead they go after the stars of the league with their stick blades, butt ends, shoulders, and elbows.
Here are my picks for the Spineless Opponents of the Black and Gold.
