In every game between the Capitals and Bruins this season, drama has seemed to follow.
Sunday at TD Garden was no different, as 35 minutes of penalties were dished out in a 6-3 Capitals loss. And in the third period, forward Garnet Hathaway was given a five-minute major and a 10-minute misconduct for boarding Jarred Tinordi, which left Tinordi profusely bleeding on the ice.
Tinordi left the game and didn’t return. There was no call on the hit originally, but after a referee review, the play was deemed ejection-worthy.
“It looked to me like he was lining him up for a hit,” coach Peter Laviolette said postgame. “The player was somewhere around the goal line and turned at the last second. I don't think that he finished it with a ton of force, I think he let off the hit, but it ends up going to a review and five minutes.”
