Derian Hatcher, Gutless Coward
Nothing sums up the Pens ass kicking of the Flyers in Game 5 more than the image of Derian Hatcher skating away in fear from Big Georges, again. Only 3 nights earlier, Hatcher had no problem trading punches with Ryan Malone, a player he outweighs by 20 pounds. Now he had a chance to energize his team when they needed it most, and take on BGL (a player equal his size).
As expected, Hatcher skates away with purse intact, but not before he uses his stick to cheapshot BGL a couple of times. Prototypical Flyer behavior, and the reason they are loathed. Anytime they have a chance to man up, they bring the sticks and the visors, and run away when it's convenient. Cowardly turds pretending to be tough guys.
Crosby whines, Malkin dives, the refs sucked, wha, wha, wha. 6-0. Later, ass bags.
