Carlyle had the last change here. WTF did he think was going to happen?

Both Scott and Kessel deserve suspensions (of several games each) out of that and Clarkson as well if he came off the bench.
Not for nothing, but you really don't know what you're talking about here. Scott did nothing until Kessel got in his face, and when Scott followed up with his promise because Kessel had been chirping him all game, Kessel ran and started slashing him at all angles. Scott shouldn't receive anything.
