Another example of referees completely not understanding the instigator. The rule is there to prevent jumpings. Westgarth had his gloves off first, despite Selleck being the aggressor. So that suspension is a joke. As is the "leaving the bench on a legal line change with the purpose of starting an altercation." How the f*ck this rule got put in place is beyond me, it's absolutely ludicrous and probably half the fights that take place could be categorized under this, including nearly every fight that comes off a faceoff.

But whatever NHL, keep using old brawl clips to hype up your sh*tty, non-existant rivalries that you continuously try to fabricate.
