Why Modano Wants An Office Job ...

For those of you who missed Saturday night's Dallas-Boston game (and I'd bet that 95% of you did...who would watch that on a Saturday night?), these two lengthy clips distill the best moments of what turned into an absolute gong-show of epic proportions.

Steve Ott and Sean Avery were running around like nutjobs and the Boston Bruins not only stood up to the Stars, they embarrassed them with some old time Boston hockey. I don't care what team you root for, you can't help but cheer the Big Bad Bruins as these clips unfold.

You probably don't have the 20 minutes to watch these but if you do, it is worth it.

Ott, who was much worse than Avery if you can believe it, probably was the main inspiration for Mike Modano's now already famous two day quote when he said, “It was one of the most embarrassing things I’ve seen. If that’s what we’re going for, then they need to find me an office job.'’

Even Marty Turco got in on the act, elbowing a Boston forward in the jaw right behind his net.

I've just made a decision to watch both of these teams a lot more this season on Centre Ice. The Bruins are really coming into their own and the Stars are just too entertaining to pass up.

Wow. That was entertaining. Big ups to Marc Savard for jumping on Avery after he submarined Lucic. Boston is a loveable team.

Other highlights: Ference's hit, obviously, and Chara tossing Ott to the ice.

Thanks for posting these.
