This is absurd. No team that blocks as many shots as we do is "soft."

Two nights ago Malkin was put into the boards on a very similar play and there was no throw down brawl between the Penguins players on the ice and the Panthers. The notion that there's an eye-for-an-eye every time someone breathes on you wrong is crazy, especially in the new NHL where staring at someone the wrong way can get you a penalty. When McDonagh went down, we drew a penalty. If someone takes a run at Pacioretty, we lose the PP, and maybe even end up on the short end if a misconduct is handed out. That's sloppy and selfish play.

Boyle stood up for Biron, to me that was all that needed to be done.
