Crosby pushed someone's glove away, Letang jumped Timonen then did the Talbot crowd shush like he just beat up Shelley...it was mostly child's play. The only old school moments were Simmonds re-igniting everything by getting in Neal's face while Neal went to the penalty box, and the Adams-Hartnell fight. It was pretty embarrassing otherwise. Entertaining, but embarrassing.
So hair pulling isn't old school?
And this doesn't do anything for you?
