The NEXT shift that Derek Dorsett took, Shawn Thornton hopped over the boards and immediately started shoving Dorsett and challenged him to a fight. Of course, Dorsett declined.
Derek Dorsett left Marchand alone for the rest of the game.
Of course, the enforcer nay-sayers will find something to dismiss this away and pretend that it really did not happen.
It ****ing sucks that the team that I hate the most has figured out how to allow skill players to play hockey without worrying about being harassed and gooned.
I hope Bergevin was watching the game.
Wrong, it's actually on the same shift, after the whislte they replaced Marchand by Thornton for a face off in the
say what you want about Thornton challenging Dorsett, but reality is, CJ replaced, for a face off in the offensive zone, one of his best forwards by a goon...
considering Marchand didnt do much in this game, I'd say Dorsett did everything right.
