Oh, yeah. It's Avery. Every little thing he does gets magnified by 10.

It's much ado about nothing. The play was simple:

Avery hits Fraser, clean and hard. Then, Smid challenges him. Avery tells him to wait, as he watches the play develop. Keeps on saying wait. Then, when Smid starts to somewhat backoff, Avery drops the gloves and pops him in the jaw.

And both players are somewhat to blame. Avery for waiting before he could even get his gloves and stick gone, and Smid for not being prepared to fight.

Was it pretty? No. Was it necessary? Absolutely not. Did it affect the game? No. Simple.
