That was a beating by Ryan Wilson. I think Johnson got 5 minutes for recieving. I don't understand the announcers complaining about the linesmen not jumping in sooner. They kept moving away from the linesmen as the fight went on. They had to catch the fight before they could break it up. Wilson dominated this one.
Johnson got his hands up in the scrum expecting nothing but maybe a face wash but he got his face re-arranged.
Wilson is clearly a better scrapper and Johnson was in over his head. It didn't look like he wanted to go at all....next time these two teams play look for Engelland or Goddard(if he's back) to make up for this.
Love the Pittsburgh announcers calling for the WAAAAmbulance at the end. The refs job isn't to jump into the middle of a live fight just because a guy bit off more than he could chew. Johnson could have saved himself any time he wanted by going down. "Over the line" in protecting their crease? Please. Johnson wanted some and got it and then got some more. Simple as that.
Wilson easy win..I look at the comments and wonder why everyone hates the pens then I see bruiseyoureye and realize that's why..there's no way Johnson won and it wasn't close (pens fan and still hate bruiseyoureye btw)
BigBadBruin22 has this nailed. I'm not saying that Johnson falls into this category because I don't see the Pen's play enough, but sometimes these visor wearing sh*t disturbers (as the Great Mr. Probert referred to them) need to have a beatdown, just to remind them that they are ultimately responsible for their actions. Wilson did his job here as he came to step in front of his teammate that might be less inclined to engage in said activities.
Who the hell is 'tard in the booth. Oh that's Bob Errey of course. What a prize! When you come in well after the whistle and stir it up in front of the net like Johnson did, you are looking for it and nothing else. If you are a non fighter, then stay away from trouble. For this c__t announcer to say that it was well over the line is ridiculous. Typical of the way he played. Good job Wilson in establishing the rules! Nice beatdown on Johnson who deserved it. Cuminyoureye is still a complete idiot!
