Bickel is a kid the guys like the coach likes and sticks up for his mates. Last game Rangers go up and Tampa comes out looking to fight Bickel does it and does well no change in the flow of the game. could have just as easy been a guy like Pyatt and he would have gotten his ass kicked
Or much likely there simply wouldn't have been a fight. There's no rule that you have to fight and when you are up 2-0 pretty quick I'd rather not fight. Had Bickel lost that fight the momentum could've swung.
