Steve Ott was getting under skin again, and threw some sweet hits on both Josh Gorges and Andrei Kostitsyn in quick succession. Then Gregory Stewart decided to instigate a fight with Ott (we'll see if there's actually a call on that) and it was on.
Almost. Someone on the Stars actually helped out Ott this time. No surprise who it was: defenseman Darryl Sydor, who was pretty vocal last Sunday on how the team was wrong not helping Ott when he was getting pummeled by the Ducks. No doubt he would back those comments up, ay?
Stewart doesn't get instigating but he does get interference and roughing. Now Alex Kovalev is heading to the box for roughing. Wow, Montreal probably can't wait for the first-period horn.
