Saturday he was suspended by the NHL's Department of Player Safety for one game.
Yes, you are reading that correctly.
Last summer, John Tortorella sent Columbus Blue Jackets players a terse personal letter letting them know that uncomfortable times were ahead.
"I just thought he didn't have many options; their [defensemen] were kind of slow getting back and he had his back turned to me", Sheary said after he had stormed Bobrovsky's garden to start the play that earned the Penguins a goal on their first shot.
"We did enough to get the win", Edmundson said, "and hopefully we can elevate our game a couple more notches in St. Louis". Goalie Henrik Lundqvist was once again fantastic in net, but the pressure from the Canadiens proved to be too much in the end.
Down 2-0 in the series, the Jackets are not moping around, instead they want to capitalize on finally being back on their ice in front of their fans to try and get their first postseason win this year.
Game 3 is set for Sunday, and it's highly unlikely that Calvert will be on the ice for that matchup and perhaps for the rest of the series as a result of his unsafe and cowardly hit. "When they're in that offensive zone, they're as risky a line as there is in the game right now". "You see guys just working hard, you get pucks to the net and they go in".
Fleury's appearance on Friday will be his 102nd in the playoffs, a franchise record for a goaltender.
Tortorella admittedly had to walk away from the dressing room at times this season so he wouldn't blow up after the Blue Jackets played a bad period, letting assistant coaches interact with the players. "I'm proud of our club, the way they've handled themselves".
Brandon Saad scored for Columbus, and Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 28 shots but the Blue Jackets continued to have issues offensively.
The Rangers were not overly concerned about being outshot 58-38 in Game 2. If the Sharks are going to regain the lead in this series, they will have to make Edmonton pay for its physical play.
"I just felt that it was a lousy room with guys thinking they could come and go as they pleased - the entitlement factor", he said.
Evgeni Malkin, set up by Crosby, added a goal one second after a Pittsburgh power play ended early in the third period for a 3-1 lead. Zack Kassian and Connor McDavid each scored short-handed goals to help tie the series.
"I didn't bat an eyelash about it", Penguins goalie coach Mike Bales said.
Exactly like in Game 1, the Oilers were up by a goal heading into the final 20 minutes of the contest.
