Another Version Of The Gaustad-Pacioretty Incident

From Sabres beat reporter Paul Hamilton of WGR-550,

Right after Pat Kaleta scored into the empty net Tuesday in Montreal to ice the game, he did his arm pumping goal celebration down the slot. Max Pacioretty took exception and started talking trash as he does all game. His target this time was Paul Gaustad. Pacioretty asked him “Where’s Lucic” with Gaustad countering “Where’s Chara” in reference to the hit Chara put on Pacioretty into the glass last year that started a near riot in the city of Montreal and almost ended his career.

Now the city’s fans are tougher than their hockey team because Chara is still waiting to be challenged by a Canadien. Many talk about how soft the Sabres are, but they can’t hold a candle to this bunch.

Lindy Ruff was also agitated by it being put out there, “I could give you one situation every night and for them to go public I thought was ridiculous. I think they were looking for something talk about or feel good about after that game and they’re barking up the wrong tree if you ask me.”

Ah, Lindy.  You slay.

Pacioretty doesn’t get one red ounce of sympathy.  He started it so he should just shut up and play hockey.

Gaustad better be careful or Pacioretty will get the Montreal police force after him.
