Highlights show what appears to a throat slash gesture by Boynton last night. Colin Campbell is dealing with it.

Err, what?

You can almost hear him on the rink mic: “Heyo, fuch something.” Looked more like a F-U gesture if anything. Or the worst throat slash ever.

So what!  I am always amazed at how calm players are after fighting.  You figure the adrenaline is rushing at that point..  To have a ton of cameras on you and nearly 15,000+ fans staring at you, I think we as fans can cut a guy some slack for any hand gesture that may occur afterwards.  Its not like he is climbing over the glass with a broken beer bottle.

Agreed Osrt.
Saw it live on a 52” screen so it’s way more clear.
He definitely did the throat-slashing gesture and muttered “You’re f’ing dead” on the way to the box.

It was a good tilt though. Boynton got caught with a beautiful left-hand that Nick never saw coming. Dropped him hard.

I’ve got no respect for the open ice knee runners, the hard left hand got him good.

“You’re f’ing dead”

Yeah, that’s what it looked like to me, too.
