21 Comments

Pittsburgh Penguins agitator Steve Downie was at it again Saturday night leaving his feet to deliver a hit on New York Islanders center Frans Nielsen early in the third period.

Islanders defenseman Travis Hamonic took exception to the hit and dropped the gloves with Downie.

Even the Penguins’ broadcast couldn’t deny Downie left his feet.

The Penguins forward was assessed a minor for charging and a fighting major.

Hamonic meanwhile picked up five for fighting, a two minute instigator and a 10 minute misconduct.
