This is the kind of quote you want to see from a guy who is known as an enforcer:

"You play hard and you make sure he knows you’re out there," enforcer Ryan Reaves said. "You can’t do anything stupid. You don’t want to jeopardize the game based on the team’s emotions ... especially in the West, which is so tight right now. I don’t think you want to be chasing guys around and losing two points. We’re smart, but I think we’ll just make sure he knows that it’s going to be a tough game for him."

Are the Blues going to go after Anders Lee, whose hit with head contact knocked Carl Gunnarsson onto the injured reserve? Not based off the article on attitudes on retribution from Jeremy Rutherford. They have their eyes on the prize, and that prize isn't a really cool fight. That prize is two points.

What's done is done. Lee got his fine, let's move on.

This is your gameday thread. Comment like you'd rather see goals than scrums. Let's do this. Let's Go Blues.
