Zetterburg bounced back and took it as an oppurtunity to show his teamates he couldn't be intimidated, and he won the respect of his teammates - hopefully Filatov does the same.

Last Night Filatov was good with the puck, but he wasn't really getting his body into it, he was more using his stick, still has a long way to to go physically (as in using his body) and maybe getting a lick from his teammate will make him realize he isnt the golden boy anymore and he'll have to get into the tracks sometimes to be a real NHL'er
It's not a matter of babying anyone. It's totally irrelevant who it was that was receiving the hit. It was a dirty, stupid, unnecessary play, made even worse because he was inflicting it against his own teammate.

For what it's worth, Filatov came back and was right back in the corners.
