Aaron Ward's no sucker

Aaron Ward took a sucker punch from Scott Walker during the Bruins' game 6 romp over the Hurricanes. Ward's no sucker though.

One thing hockey players do is learn from past experience. If a guy takes a run at you, the next time you see him coming you'll have your elbows up.

And Ward has experience to learn from. A couple years ago while with the Rangers, he took a punch in the same spot from Donald Brashear, who was on his way off the ice after a scrap with Brendan Shanahan.

So don't feel too sorry for Ward. Perhaps a little too willing to take one for the team, but he's no pacifist.
