Video- Anisimov Thinks He’s Ted Lindsay…

Turns this stick around like a gun and points it at the ..... opposition?  No Artem, not the opposition or else you WILL need Lindsay to ride shotgun for you.

(For those of you who don’t why the Ted Lindsay reference, here is the short version.

Gordie Howe received a death threat while in Toronto, after the Wings won and were going off the ice, Lindsay turned his stick around and started firing machine gun like bullets at the crowd.)

Pretty funny! If that is all it takes to get the other team that upset, it was worth it!

Downie may be looking at a suspension…

via Katie Strang of ESPN New York,

Jumping the bench during an illegal line change warrants an automatic ten-game suspension, but under rule 70.2 he could still face supplementary discipline even if the change was deemed legal. The league’s Department of Player Safety will likely review whether the substitution was made for Downie’s fellow defenseman Brett Connolly after the goal. Video replays show Connolly at the bench with his back turned to the ice as Downie jumped off.

Downie received two minutes for roughing and a ten-minute misconduct for his tussle with Anisimov.

Nothing wrong with Anisimov’s move, nothing wrong with the reaction save for Downie being an ass and leaving the bench.

I’d prefer TB not to fight about it and just come back harder though, but whatever, people fight over the dumbest things these days (most notably perfectly clean hits).

They did both, didn’t they?  Bolts won 3-2.
