One thing I forgot to add after last night's game.
Did anyone else think it was very bizarre/inappropriate to see one of the linesmen (I believe it was Michel Cormier, but can't find a clip to confirm) deliver a hard two-handed push to 20-year-old rookie defenseman Travis Hamonic at the end of the game?
I did. In fact, it was so strange I originally did a double take to make sure it wasn't the actual player Hamonic was involved in the scrum with that did the pushing. And from what I could gather, it happened after the scuffle was effectively broken up.
No word yet on whether the linesman will be disciplined, but it definitely crossed the line in my opinion.
