The Steve Ott fracas of Saturday afternoon was still a hot topic after Sunday's game. Coach Dave Tippett talked about it in his press conference. Here's what he had to say:
"I would’ve liked to have seen our players that were on the ice engage a little more. I’ll put it like that. With how hard Otter plays, and guys know he can’t fight because he has a cast on his hand -- you’ve got people who are not known fighters, I understand that. We're not asking people to jump in and fight. Jump in and protect."
Defenseman Darryl Sydor, who was not on the ice at the end of Saturday's game, also had his say:
"We need to support (each other). That’s not right, what happened there. If you’re going to win as a team, you battle as a team you care about each other as a team. In situations like that, I think we reacted the wrong way."
Well, all we can do now is wait and see what the NHL says. If it's a suspension of any length of time, how much does that hurt this team? And I'll ask my question from last night again: Do any Ducks get suspensions here? How did Travis Moen not at least get an instigator penalty out of that? Didn't he do exactly what Trevor Daley had done (and was given an instigator for) after Loui Eriksson got hit early in the game?
OK, kids, I'll be back with the Top 10 in a second.
