The Columbus Blue Jackets weren’t happy with New York Rangers forward Rick Nash for shoving goalie Sergei Bobrovsky late in the second period of Friday’s game.
The immediate result of Nash and Bobrovsky coming together was a massive scrum, and a total of three penalties. In the third period, however, Nash fought Blue Jackets forward – and a former teammate – Matt Calvert. It was a direct result of what happened earlier.
“He had to pay for what he did (punching Bobrovsky). It was a gutless move,” said Calvert, as per Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch.
