The Capitals were not happy with Brayden Schenn after his dangerous cross-check to the leg of Evgeny Kuznetsov during Game Four. Tom Wilson called the play “cheap.” Schenn, who’s delivered borderline hits all series long, admitted it was dumb.
“All I’m going to say about that is it was a pretty dumb play by me,” Schenn said to The Washington Post’s Mark Giannotto during the Flyers morning skate. “There’s no reason for that, and I’ll leave it at that.”
Friday night, TJ Oshie dropped gloves with Schenn right after the opening face-off, as if to say his team would not put up with that ish.
I would describe the fight but it was all punches. Just non-stop punching. A punch and then a punch and then another punch. Oshie and Schenn literally punched themselves out until Oshie fell over.
This game should be fun.
Chorney calls TJ Oshie's fight with Brayden Schenn "impressive." "It takes a lot of guts to do that. Oshie wanted to set the tone for us."
