The linesman got involved before a fight ensued, so it won't show up on the scoresheet. But the Blackhawks had the right mentality - they showed a willingness to stand up for their teammate. It's not something we have seen a lot from the Rangers this season.
This is well put. The team is beginning to remind me of the team that stood around as Jagr was run. By Cory Cross of all people.
