First this: The Rangers will (or maybe they have already) send tapes of Brandon Prust’s fight with Tom Sestito to the league for review. At the very least, they believe Sestito pulled Prust’s hair — which was pretty obvious from the replays. At the worst, there’s the possibity that Sestito actually pulled on the stitches in Prust’s face from an errant puck earlier in the game. Prust’s cut was obviously re-opened during the bout.
But of course it’s the Flyers, so there won’t be anything more than the wrist-slap $2,500 fine.
Here are the post-game interviews:
