In the 3rd Period, the Rangers Derek Dorsett went after the Nose Marchand. Dorsett got in Marchand's face, challenged him to a fight and chased him all across the ice.
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.
Thornton is one hell of an enforcer and one that you can trust to play quality minutes when he's on the ice. Much more than just a goon imo
