Richy wasnt trying to fight, he just let Booth get that anger out after Richards layed Booth out (which was a completely LEGAL hit). Richy just kinda grabbed on and let Booth let it all out. I bet that made Booth feel all warm and like he got even.
Richards clearly wasn't trying to fight booth. but if he doesn't drop the gloves he's a coward. if he clobbers booth he's still the villain. booth did well to stand up for himself. it fired up his team for the win.
Booth and Richards: Stand-up guys, especially Booth. Settled his beef w/ that crazy hit from Richards awhile back. Insult to injury: Booth was +3, and had a 4-point night. Real hockey, real payback on the ice.
people need to shut the hell up about the "cheap shot." the fact is that booth coasted into the zone and left his head down. you're supposed to learn in peewees to not do that. richards skated in with his shoulder down and went for the clean hit. booth is just an asshole that had no regard for his surroundings or his safety. IT WAS HIS OWN FAULT. just because a guy gets injured doesn't mean the hit was cheap.
and as for the fight, not all that. they tangled up and fell. booth sent a message and richie gave him his shot to close the books on the matter.
Not much going on here, but a couple guys TRYING to land a punch but no damage done. Oh, and by the way fellas, lose the f*cking buckets next time, especially if you're wearing a phish bowl (visor)! Nice to see Booth go back at Richards for the hit a while back-hockey players hold the longest grudges! DRAW
