Not only does Scott Hartnell know how to throw a glove. He also knows his way around the grill.
Ed Moran had a terrific article in the Daily News on last night’s game. I rarely discover postgame coverage of a game I watched that I actually enjoy reading, usually because the journalist covers the highlights and inserts a few standard, tired quotes.
Grinder goals are so very rare, and perhaps that’s why they illicit more excitement and interest than the nightly coverage of Carter/Gagne/Richards. Perhaps it’s just that grinders are special people with depth of character. But either way, Moran’s description of Riley Cote and Darroll Powe reacting to their performances warmed my heart.
And yes, as a tough-as-nails, fight-loving, blood-thirsty Philly hockey fan, I’m fully willing to acknowledge that I too can be touched by the grinders. What can I say? Hockey brings out the best in me. 🙂
