NBC cut away—of course, Tiger was making a move … a golf move—so you probably didn’t see that after Milan Lucic jumped Ryan McDonagh behind the net after the buzzer, the two teams nearly got together at center ice. John Scott was jawing at Zdeno Chara and they really came close to getting at one another. The officials separated everybody, but it was close to being nasty.
Of course, Lucic will escape punishment because everybody does. McDonagh had a nice bloody welt on his face, but didn’t want to discuss it.
Some interesting interviews. Listen to Dan Girardi’s take on the game. He makes a lot of sense, that, yeah. it sure wasn’t close to perfect, but maybe it wasn’t as bad as it looked at times. And the coach had some cool things to say about Marian Gaborik.
