Apparently Simmonds had been running his mouth quite a bit before that, and we all know how he plays.
That is very true about Simmonds but this whole fighting after a clean hit is an ongoing thing. I actually remember it happening a number of times in a preseason game I watched which coincidentally involved the Capitals (I forget the other team). It is something I have seen mentioned a couple times on NHL Network. Just something I have a problem with. It seems like players can't take a clean check anymore without needing to fight afterward.
You made a good point about Simmonds though. He does run his mouth A LOT and is almost always willing to drop the gloves.
Edit: The preseason game took place on 9/23
