He was screening me constantly during the game and after all of that and my teammates not clearing him, I decided to step up for myself so I shoved him hard and he falls down. The shot came so I stopped it. Next thing I know he gets up and rips the mask off my face and tries to shove my head down. I get up, drop the gloves, and I'm ready to fight but we get separated. We get 2 minutes each and that's that. After the game it's hand shakes, had a good laugh about it, and some beers.
After the game I was talking to people who run the rink (they're long time refs also) and they said he should have been tossed and added that was classless/bush league to go for the mask first. My other friend however, who is a self proclaimed goalie hater, thinks this just another case of a goalie who dishes it out but don't think they should receive. I got plenty that game before the cross check and I was ready to take and give more.
I know both parties are guilty, but is either one of us more wrong? Just curious if anyone else been in/seen this situation?
You sure bout that?
