With the Avalanche up 6-1 in the third, their had already been some questionable hits, with some minor penalty minutes. However, with about 12 minutes left in the game, the worst fight I’ve seen in a while, took place and the penalties reflected as such this time. Also, just a shout out here to my best friend, who helped me get all the names and penalties correct here.
Ryan Reaves (5 Minute Major with an additional 2- 2 minute penalties for roughing. Hence the 9 Minute Powerplay for Colorado.
10 Minutes Misconducts to Vegas
10 Minute Misconduct to Colorado
All of this began when Reaves hit the Colorado Avalanche Goaltender, Grubauer in the back of the head. Reaves then pulled another Avalanche player, Graves, into a headlock, and tossed him to the ice in a tumble. As this happened two other players, listed above, Pietrangelo and Saad got into it on their own, just a few feat away. As for Whitecloud and Nichuskin, they just got wrapped into the mess as well.
The final score was 7-1 Avalanche. After such a wild night, we look forward to Wednesday, at 10PM, where hopefully cooler heads will prevail.
