Oh you!
Supposedly it was significantly closer to nifty stick-work than a spear. He got fined for it, no suspension. I've noticed Mangene is quite scrappy after the whistle too. Nice little area of his game I wasn't expecting.

Hostetter destroyed a guy in a fight last night as well. They'd been jawing at each other all game, and Hos finally dropped everything and threw 3 big punches before the other guy had his gloves off...then, when broken apart by linesman, he got close enough to land another shot. Fortunate to avoid discipline.

Sounds like most of that laundry list last night was from a (shocker) ref losing control of the game. BOTH coaches appealed the use of him for tonight's game.

Speaking of which, they lost tonight. Scored 2 in the first 3 mins and nothing the rest of the game. Reading scored 3 in the 3rd for a W. Mangene had a gorgeous GW-pass that a wide-open Bohmbach fired into the side of the net with barely a minute to go, and Johnston was hauled down on a potential breakaway at the red line in the 3rd, and received a diving call rather than a penalty shot.

Several heavy hits and a wrestling-match of a fight was all that culminated from the ****-show last night in Reading.
