Canuck's fan's lose whiner title to Bruin's faithful

The Canucks have a wonderful chance to win the Stanley Cup provided they stay focused and keep working but widely critized for being whiners and whingers earlier in the playoffs, the Canucks and their fans have well and truly lost the whining title to the Bruin's fans who seem to be blindly focused on Burrows alleged bite in Game 1.  Presumeably they feel that they would have lost neither game had Burrows not done what he did and media types everywhere were quick to leap on the anti-Burrows bandwagon as if he was the first to ever commit such a reprehensible act and I, for one, am getting a little sick and tired of hearing it.

So let's just try to inject a little perspective here.  The Bruins fans seem to think that their heroes are choirboys so I would like to remind them that a very large part of the hockey world thought that the following were "classless" acts which deserved suspensions which didn't come

Anybody in Beantown remember Chara's hit on Max Pacioretty?  An act of thuggery which went unpunished to the amazement of many.

What about Horton squirting water and throwing a water bottle at a fan?  Remember that?  How are we defining classless Boston?

And other incidents from this series: Peverley's two-handed slash on the back of Bieksa's knee in game two, multiple cross checks to the small of a Sedins back in game one and in the same game, the cross check on a down and  injured Dan Hamhuis with Sequin again squirting the injured player with water from the bench as he lay on the ice.  I really think that you need to examine your terms of reference Boston fans.

Actually, after having thought that through, I can see why you deserve the whiner's title.  You earned it fair and square.

Something about people in glass houses and rocks seems to come to mind.  Enjoy your title, league leading whiners.
