Penguins and Bears center ice meeting after a questionable celebration.


This game perfectly describes what a rivalry between two teams is. The WBS Penguins and Hershey Bears do not like each other. And now Braden Holtby is at the center of attention for his celebration at center ice after the Bears beat the Penguins 3-2 in a shootout.

Here's the clip of the celebration and center ice meeting.

Hopefully this sparks a fire for the AHL Penguins because they voiced their displeasure with Holtby's post game antics.

Here's what Zach Sill said in a post-game interview:

"We were just upset, just the showboating," Sill said . "We showed we weren’t happy with it. In our own barn, you don’t want that happening."

Ryan Craig also had some words for Penguins beat writer Jonathan Bombulie:

"I don’t think our guys would react like that, but everyone reacts differently to winning," Craig said. "We just want to go about our business and take care of our own business."

 

Not suspension worthy as he was given a ten minute misconduct at the conclusion of the shootout. These two teams just don't like each other. What are everyone's thoughts on the celebration after the shootout win on the road?
