"I'm sure the league will look at it and we definitely won't forget about it".
Number of players who made their Canadiens debuts on Wednesday night, the Habs' second game of the preseason, including Max Domi, Joel Armia, Nick Suzuki, Kenny Agostino, Alexandre Grenier, Matthew Peca, Josh Brook, Joel Teasdale, Will Bitten, and Xavier Ouellet.
About a minute into the third period of that contest, Domi and Ekblad got tied up and were having words. It became clear that Domi wanted a piece of Ekblad, who didn't seem to particularly share that interest.
Ekblad went down hard and was bloodied up pretty good. You respect your opponents and if your opponent doesn't want to engage in a fight, there's no reason to drop your glove and punch him square in the face. There's intent from the 23-year-old to drop the gloves and throw some hands, but Ekblad wasn't interested.
To blame Ekblad for being sucker punched is like saying you should have studied for a Pop Quiz in high school.
3,513 - Number of penalty minutes racked up by Tie Domi - who was in the house to watch son, Max make his preseason debut - in his 17-year National Hockey League career, ranking him third all-time in National Hockey League history in that category. "You don't do those types of things", Panthers goaltender Roberto Luongo said after the game.
Domi received a two-minute roughing minor along with a match penalty and game misconduct as the Habs fell to Florida 5-2, and his brain-turd will likely result in a multiple-game suspension and cost him a solid chunk of regular season time.
"Bit of a gutless play".
In case you're wondering, Montreal and Florida don't meet up again until December 28.
