When I read the headline I thought it was the Boston incident for sure...

How did they not suspend him for two incidents in a week?

Engellend got suspended despite getting beat up by Scott for his dirty hit. Can't have it both ways. We're obviously dealing with a conspiracy here.

Nah,poor Raffi took his whooping after the shoulder to Ferance's head. McQuaid doped out a old school,much deserved ass whooping! Thats Torres style,so many of his dirty,cheap hits go unpunished. Well the mulleted maniac called him on that sh*t,took him down a notch.
