A significant sequence of ‘dumb’ from the Rangers-Canadiens game

After Brandon Prust hit Derek Stephan quite late...

Derek Dorsett challenged Prust to a fight...

And while that was happening, Daniel Carcillo hacked, slashed and then shoved a linesman.

Carcillo received 2, 10 and a game misconduct, and he'll be suspended for his efforts.

I’m nothing close to a carcillo fan, but I have to say I was expecting something significantly worse from the description. There was definitely a push on the ref and he should be suspended as that’s what happens when you contact an official intentionally.

It just BOGGLES the mind that a team would dress Carcillo in the ECF in the first place.  I’m not the only one, right?

I’ve seen much, much worse abuse of an official (I remember once in the IHL 2.0 Robin Big Snake left the penalty box to get into a brawl and when a linesman intercepted him, Big Snake literally tossed the linesman [hard] into the boards to get him out of the way so he could fight), but… nawwww Carcillo has no defense for that.  It was dumb and needless, and therefore a very Carcillo thing to do.  He didn’t just bump him or shove him, he actually kinda’ cross-checked the linesman too.

The refs were atrocious.

Yeah seriously? How the back ref didn’t call that hit is beyond me. The rest of it was totally predictable with a no-call. He was right there too. He had to see it. And honestly the hit was a hell of a lot dirtier than Carcillos little tap which seemed like frustrated carelessness to me rather than intent to slash.

dirty hit for sure but someone was admiring their beautiful pass way too much which makes me laugh
