He's actually a guy who takes very few penalties.
He had more unmatched penalty minutes last night then he did all season.
Prior to this game, he had 18 FMs (= 90 PIM), and 98 PIM total.
I think last night he went the extra mile to show he wants a spot on the team.
A guy who's not afraid to get an instigator and misconduct (and possibly suspended) to stick up for his team? I'll take that.
I think the instigator/misconduct was bull anyway. That should only be given if you jump a guy. What I saw in that fight was both of them dropping the gloves at the same time.
the boarding call.. he was probably expecting the other guy to turn, but no, he left his back wide open so he gets his face smashed into the glass.. For all we know it was intentional to draw the penalty, he knew prust was committed to the check on him, so he leaves his back turned so it becomes a dirty hit and gets a penalty.
