We had another heated affair between the Calgary Flames and Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night, as the Jets were looking for revenge as they lost the previous game on Monday between the two teams.
However, the Jets might want revenge for this incident that took place during the second period, when players started pushing and showing in Flames goalie David Rittich’s crease. It ended with Sam Bennett holding Adam Lowry while MatthewTkachuk threw a few punches at him.
The officials saw it happened and sent Tkachuk to the penalty box for roughing. The Jets did not manage to score on the power-play, however, they did get away with the 3-2 victory.
Check out the scrum in which Tkachuk didn’t stop punching Lowry as he couldn’t move.
Fans, who love to hate Tkachuk, didn’t mince their words on the Flames’ forward’s ability to fight… despite the fact that he scored both goals in the game for Calgary.
Last week, a video of Tkachuk went viral when he sent the puck towards Toronto blue liner Jake Muzzin, who decided to flip it back at Tkachuk as the horn sounded. That didn’t go well with the Flames’ forward who was livid and flipped out on the ice, going after Muzzin trying to hit him and then threw a fit on his way out the tunnel, looking like an idiot in the process.
It was later explained by Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman that Tkachuk was upset that none of his teammates joined him in the scrum.
Quite different this time with Bennett keeping Lowry in a headlock, eh?
