Preseason got feisty in Toronto last night when the Leafs and Sabres hit the ice, we’re talking full line brawl. Resident Buffalo tough guy John Scott who rings in at 6’8 dropped his gloves looking to engage Leafs not so tough guy Phil Kessel. The insanity just kept coming, including a not so often seen goalie fight.
Newest Leaf David Clarkson managed to leave the bench in an attempt to aid Kessel. While the gesture was to assist a teammate, it’s a big no-no in the NHL (just look at Coyotes’ Paul Bissonnette’s mistake last week). Clarkson will be looking at a 10 game regular-season suspension. Not the best way to start a season for the widely discussed free-agent summer signing.
It’s only preseason, so we can only imagine what type of antics will hit the ice when these two teams face each other in the coming months.YouTube responded to TubePress with an HTTP 410 - No longer available
