This is where the "cheapshot" was, as TooToo sorta lunged at Igninla and gloved punched him. They then seperated and fought as is described in the recap. Lots of times when a fight starts guys "come together" first, and this is really what happened here. And far be it for a best to follow the Queensbury Rules against the other teams star player, but the only thing that was really out of line from Tootoo was the handwipe after the fight, which he said later he probably wouldn't have done if he could take it back.
And I agree the handwipe thing was wrong, especially when your team is getting its *** cleaned 4-0.
