Noted goon Marcus Johansson is at it again — wait, wrong Swede. What I meant to say was: Andre Burakovsky, the team’s player with the most penalty minutes — no, that’s not right either…
Oh. Tom Wilson and Michael Latta, penalty-box regulars, have been doing some very important work at practice recently: teaching their skill forwards how to fight. Playoff hockey is right around the corner, and even though fighting is discouraged, a player has to be ready for anything.
Unfortunately, it does not appear as if the skill forwards wanted to learn.
Last week, Willy had a kerfuffle with ex-roommie and purest of all cinnamon rolls Andre Burakovsky.

The Burracuda isn’t as ferocious as his nickname suggests, mostly dodging Tom’s punches by lowering his head and laughing, which is definitely how NHL fights go.
Latta had it in for Marcus Johansson on Tuesday, and it was vicious.

Instead of a headlock, Mojo just kind of pushes Latta away from him by his face, while Michael throws blind punches.
Swedes are lovers, not fighters.
We can only assume Jason Chimera was the one responsible for teaching Tom and Michael the ropes.
