Sestito Picks Up 27 Penalty Minutes In One Second.
For anyone who didn't see it last night, Sestito attacked Nolan on the face-off. Nolan never dropped the gloves and Sestitio continued to throw punches at him. Sestito picked up a 5-minute fighting major, a 2-minute penalty for instigating the fight, a 10-minute misconduct and a game misconduct.
Here is a link to a video that shows what happened....
Yea it was a wtf moment for sure. It's kind of wack Nolan didn't fight though.
It was a ***** move. He took a run at Henrik Sedin, than Sesisto challenged him at the faceoff and he didn't drop the gloves. What happened to the honour system in hockey? Answering the bell if you take a run at a star? Just a total ***** move.
He slewfooted him. Listen if you're a 4th liner, and you take a run at the other teams best player and captain, and that team perceives it as a cheap shot, then you fight. That's hockey.
I don't know if you can call that a slewfoot. Probably would have been a clean hit if Sedin didn't bail out on it, but because he bailed out it made the whole thing look awkward.
My opinion...Nolan didn't have to drop the gloves in this situation. Especially against a guy like Sestito. I get the feeling that if Bieksa steps up to the plate here, so does Nolan. No need for a complete mismatch and a dumb trade off on Nolan's part.
