Poll: How should NHL punish Rome?

When Canucks defenseman Aaron Rome lined up Nathan Horton and delivered a crushing blow in the first period Monday night, he sent the Bruins forward to the hospital. Rome then was given a five-minute interference penalty and a game misconduct. The NHL is to meet Tuesday morning to examine the play and determine if more punishment is warranted. How do you think the league should rule? Cast your vote at the Big Bad Blog.

Mashup: Mavs call Heat's Wade a complainer

The Mavericks are down 2-1 to the Heat in the NBA finals, but they apparently aren't afraid to speak their mind and criticize their opponent — and each other. On Monday, DeShawn Stevenson revealed to the media that one of the Mavs' strategies is to transition to offense quickly after a Dwyane Wade drive because of his "overreacting" in an attempt to draw foul calls.

"Coach said it before the series we have a chance to push the ball like we like because [Wade] complains to the ref a lot," Stevenson said. "We've got to take advantage of that. He does it all the time. He did it like seven times [in Game 3]."

Guard Jason Terry also made a comment about Miami's defense not being as good as the Trail Blazers' — and yet he's shooting just 38.2 percent from the field. That led to Dirk Nowitzki calling out his teammate.

"Jet [Terry] hasn't really been a crunch-time, clutch player for us the way we need...

Thornton: 'Rome is a good person'

Bruins enforcer Shawn Thornton didn't come down hard on Aaron Rome Monday night following Rome's hit that laid out Nathan Horton in the first period and sent him to the hospital. Part of the reason Thornton measured his comments carefully was that he was teammates with Rome on the 2007 Stanley Cup champion Anaheim Ducks.

"I played with him and from what I know of him, he is an honest player but that doesn't take away from the fact that it was a lateral hit to the head and that's what that rule was set into place for, as far as I'm concerned," Thornton said. "Aaron Rome is a good person. I played with him. We played together in Portland [Maine] and Anaheim. I'm not saying he's a bad person. I'm justsaying those are the hits - as players - we have to take out of the game."

Marchand: Series 'going to get chippier'

In one of the more physical, tense and nasty Stanley Cup final games in recent memory, the Bruins hammered the Canucks, 8-1, Monday night in Game 3 and now trail Vancouver, 2 games-to-1. 

The physical play began with a shot to the head of Nathan Horton by Aaron Rome just over five minutes into the contest. Horton left on a stretcher after his neck was immobilized. He reported having feeling in all extremities and was taken to Massachusetts General for observation. The nastiness reached a new level in the third when Shawn Thornton was ejected via a 10-minute misconduct while three more Bruins followed. Rome was ejected along with three other Canucks in the third, as the Bruins poured it on with four goals in the second and four in the third.  

"We had a good game but we were really looking to send a message and we wanted to get back in the series," Brad Marchand said. "They had a pretty commanding lead there. We knew it was...

Julien: Let league handle 'blindside' hit
By: DJ Bean

Though the Bruins had plenty to smile about after their 8-1 blowout of the Canucks in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals, their concerns were with the guy who's made a Boston career out of smiling. Nathan Horton had to watch the final two periods of the game from Mass General Hospital after taking a blindside hit to the head from Canucks defenseman Aaron Rome and leaving the game on a stretcher.

"I think what I would  call it is it was a blindside hit that we've talked about taking out of the game," Julien said when asked if he felt the hit on Horton was dirty. "[Horton] made the pass. It was late. [Rome] came from the blindside. Whether it's through the motion of the hit, it appeared he left his feet a little bit.

"Again, that's my view on it. I'm not going to comment more than that. I'll say what I always say: let the league take care of it.  We're trying to clean that out.  Let's see where they go with that....
