On Wednesday, Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Mark Friedman agitated noted Ottawa Senators’ agitator Brady Tkachuk. Friedman drew a penalty as Tkachuk’s anger grew. The Penguins lost because they took a ridiculous nine penalties, including one by Friedman, and yielded four power-play goals, but Friedman’s contributions were considerable.
On Friday, Friedman drew another penalty by taking a punch to the face after agitating Ottawa and mixing it up in the crease after noted heavyweight pugilist (and winger) Austin Watson crashed the Penguins’ net.
The Penguins didn’t score on the power play, but they are nice to have. The Penguins were able to coast to a 4-1 win.
