Coming into Friday’s preseason game against the Boston Bruins, TJ Oshie had fought three times in his career. Adam McQuaid, if you include preseason play, had 43 fights. Naturally, Oshie decided he was an appropriate guy to get punched in the face by.
“That’s probably one of bad things about not being well educated on players in the East, you don’t exactly know who fights, who’s heavy, who’s not,” Oshie said.
The whole play started when Oshie leveled the Bruins defender behind the net with a legal shoulder-to-shoulder hit.
