Other Penalties: Stamkos received an instigator and misconduct; Buchnevich a tripping.
Stamkos gives a mean back rub.
Rangers suck, just thought I would put that out there, still only 1 cup since WW II, good job girls........................
Looked like a cheap shot + attempt to injure. Stamkos did exactly the right thing right up until he decided to lock up and not fight. Crap!
I get the instigator but where the h*ll did the boarding come from
Stamkos spoke to Buchnevich and said he thought the hit looked dirtier than it was. Stamkos went over and spoke to him.
Steven should stick to trying to score goals. This is the problem with the New NHL...everyone thinks he can be a tough guy.
Buchnevich with the accidentally on purpose knee. Stammer once again comes in and is ready to defend Kucherov. Draw & 2 but, theoretically a well earned 17 minutes by Stamkos.
Stamkos does the right thing for his teammate. The fight itself was a nothing Draw.
What a captain.. love that kind of captain who showing up for teammates. Kudos to Stamkos there.. Draw
Well Pavel lucked out there, too bad no one else stepped up mind you Pavel would never have dropped the gloves with anyone but Stamkos.....maybe the mascot....
Buchenvich attempted a semi-cheap hip check to Kuch after getting a semi-cheap check into the boards from McDonough. Stamkos took exception but couldn't get anything going against Buch who had the slight edge in a nothing fight which accomplished nothing. Takeaway from McD hit was that Buch got revenge on Kuch and Stamkos was unable to make him pay.
Brave now...not against the Bruins...another hockey SHIM... like Crosby
Why the fuck is this even a fight
Give it a draw as not much happened... but kudos for Stamkos for sticking up for a teammate and rightfully so
BUCHNEVICH needs to man up a bit/and learn how to fight. dumb ass move he pulled hes lucky it was STAMKOS .not JOHNSTON MCQUADE or anyone capable of really fighting well
Bitchnevich taking advantage of Tampa being a bunch of softies.
Valid motive or not, how did Stamkos standing up and doing the right thing benefit his team in this case? It didn't. Not only took an elite player off the ice for 17 minutes but embarrassed him at the same time.
Too bad Stamkos didn't get his azz handed to him, Draw
Atta babe there buchie babe
Stamkos really is a pussy. That was pathetic
Buchnevich was pissed that McDonogh hit him along the boards with a clean check so he decided to take it out on Kucherov as payback. Stamkos wears the "C" for a reason...he knows he can't fight but sticks up for a teammate that could have been seriously injured and possibly miss the remainder of the season or worse, the playoffs. Yes, he had to sit for 17 minutes, but in the end it added emotion and intensity to the remainder of the game where the Bolts took over. So good on him. DRAW
No Buchnevich is the problem with todays NHL - shit rats like him know they can take cheap shots with no consequences. Stamkos not trying to be a tough guy moron.
