The incident occurred at 4:48 of the first period. A minor penalty for boarding was assessed on the play.
The fine money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.
I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
