During the Washington Capitals' 4-3 loss to the Boston Bruins Monday, the latter spent most of the game - especially the third period - antagonizing the former. Words were exchanged and shots were fired, but none like what Jason Chimera did to Brad Marchand early in the final frame
Chimera "was trying to be sneaky," according to Marchand, but it did not work as Chimera earned a slashing penalty for his troubles.
If you ask me, I say the whole thing is pretty nuts.
