...wtf? Del Zotto's high stick was accidental, while Kopecky threw a blatant sucker punch. How in the world are they both fined the same amout?
...no word on if Rupp will receive any disciplinary action. Assuming he will.
@thenyrblog cross check to the head. It makes sense. Don't worry, kopecky will have to answer the bell next week
@thenyrblog anyone with half a functioning eye can see that MDZ was 1000% cheapshotted... would love to see a shanny vid justifying this one
@thenyrblog It looked like Del Zotto gave Kopecky a stick to the groin before x-check, as well. Fine is deserved, IMO.
@thenyrblog the league is a disgrace and embarrassment to the fans but more so to its players
DZ's crosscheck wasn't meant for the head, just happened because the guy bent over. Kopecker started the altercation acting the fool in front of the net when its 4-1 wth seconds to play. Or as Rupp would say, acting like a fucking idiot. Good to see the Rangers rally to DZ's defense, but next time try not to land on top of him.
Sucker punch, what a pussy.
@thenyrblog although it looked like a shot to the back, MDZ's crosscheck was to the head..thus the fine I would assume
@thenyrblog I agree, thats a joke!
@thenyrblog Absolute joke indeed. Don't get how a blindside sucker punch and a regular "jostling" mistake gets the same punishment.
