Weise is a coward no two ways about it.
Weise and McQuaid were jawing at each other about dropping them after the faceoff and Thornton tried to jump in uninvited. Thornton admits as much in his post game interview. Give it a listen if you don't believe me.

Also, OP is terrible.

EDIT: My mistake, it wasn't Thornton who admitted it, it was Marchand. Here's the quote:

I’m going to clear it up for everyone who’s listening,” Marchand said. “It was actually a really sneaky play by Thorty. Weise was trying to fight McQuaid, who was standing behind Thornton on the point. McQuaid was going to fight him. So, Weise was yelling and saying, ‘Yeah, let’s go, let’s go.’

“Thorty just figured that at that point he’d drop his gloves and surprise Weise. And the ref just kind of heard Weise yelling ‘Let’s go’ and thought he was talking to Thorty and conning him into a penalty. Thorty kind of surprised him when Thorty dropped his gloves. Weise had no idea Thorty was going to do that.”

Added Marchand: “Him and Quaider know each other a bit from the minors and I think junior as well. They might have went at [it] there.”
