Video Flashback: RJ Umberger with Fries

Posted: February 26, 2013 in Uncategorized

I remember this game like it was yesterday. Game one of the 2006 Stanley Cup playoffs. RJ Umberger taking it in the chin from Brian Campbell of the Sabres was, and probably still is, the most bone-crushing hit leveled on a Flyer by an opposing player in the past ten years.

You’d have to go back to Scott Stevens and Lindros to find something comparable.

Oh, and in case anyone was wondering, Umberger is still doing his thing in Columbus, just a few brain cells fewer than before Campbell clocked him.
