Ruff On Tucker

Lindy Ruff lost it in his post-game comments Monday night, going after Leafs forward Darcy Tucker for his knee-on-knee hit on Jochen Hect. I only post this because I hate Tucker, I hate the Leafs, and Ruff is totally right. Tucker pulled the same Avery-esque stunt two weekends ago, throwing an elbow at Canadians forward Alexei Kovalev. Thankfully, Kovalev turned around and knocked Tucker on his ass. Honesty, I find the whole agitator culture in the NHL annoying. It's like having an Argentinian soccer player on your roster.

Kovalev's elbow, forearm, whatever to Tucker's face was a season highlight for me.

Agreed. I love how Tucker acted so hard-done by about it, too. The Kovalev check was clean, Tucker had tried to take his head off about 30 seconds earlier, and he still acted like he had been stabbed from behind.

Try and see the video fromm last night. Tucker goes knee on knee on Hect, and throws his elbow at his head. He skates around, and when Hect bumps into him, he dives a perfect 10 dive. It would be laughable,except for the fact he had just injured a guy.
