When people think of the NHL’s peskiest players, Chicago Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw might not be on the tip of every tongue, but that doesn’t mean that he’s modest about getting under opponents’ skin. He did that to Buffalo Sabres’ defenseman Tyler Myers on Saturday, who paid back his spear below the belt with quite the shot:
CSNChicago.com’s Tracey Myers indicated that Shaw, 23, is just fine (and there was no real mention of “damage” in this gamer). Only Myers, 24, received a penalty (roughing) following that “exchange of ideas,” so perhaps Shaw won this one.
Granted, he also won a punch to the head, but still.
Chicago ended up beating Buffalo 6-2 tonight thanks to a four-goal third period.
