Barch could be going to talk to Neal. I've seen in the past, rookies starting fights or getting into fights, and then on the very next faceoff the team boxing coach gets in a fight just to go talk to the kid in the penalty box. Or in this case, the locker room.
The way this game is going, I don't think Dallas holds them to 2 goals. If that's the case, I hope Brassard gets in on an assist. I don't think he's every really been a fighter, and he probably won't try his hand at it for a while.
The Gordie Howe Hat Trick would be a nice little accomplishment for him.
That said, here’s to Neal scoring a Gordie and Eriksson notching his first hat trick. Maybe it could be a natural.
