Brandon Dubinsky Destroys A Gatorade Cooler After Being Ejected

With a collision in the corner, the Senators’ Matt Carkner took exception to a hit by the Ranger’s Brian Boyle and uncorked a series of punches at Boyle’s head. Boyle went turtle as he was clearly not prepared to fight Carkner, and Dubinsky jumped to his defense. As the 3rd man in an altercation, Dubinsky was ejected. Even though the call is technically correct – everyone else on the ice was right behind Dubinsky so it feels like the typically liberal playoff rules should have been in effect.

Both Keith Jones and Mike Milbury agreed that Carkner is likely to face a suspension for his actions, and it’s pretty easy to see why. If your opponent doesn’t drop the gloves and covers up, etiquette for a tough guy usually dictates laying off and letting him have it verbally. There wasn’t much to the hit, so I have no idea what Carkner actually took exception to, but it resulted in a 5 minute power play for the Rangers.

As for the Gatorade cooler? It paid the price for its location – wrong place, wrong time:

    I think he was right to help his team player. Clearly he didn’t want to fight that guy, but he kept on punching anyway. That is so wrong. Someone who is willing to fight should be able to step in. That was just so wrong.

    3rd man in…..you are taught this rule when you are 14 yrs old. Anyone trying to argue about his ejection knows nothing about hockey and might just wanna shut up about it.
