Video: Eric Godard Leaves Bench to Defend Brent Johnson In Fight

New, comments

Here's a lesson in what to do if you want to get suspended.  On one hand, I can totally see why Eric Godard would be looking to defend his goaltender.  On the other, I can see why Michael Haley would be going after Brent Johnson (revenge for Rick DiPietro, I assume).  In what was obviously a lop-sided fight to begin with, favoring without question the player with less equipment, Godard decided to go crazy, jump over the boards and unload on Haley.

Again, I don't blame him, but this isn't setting a very good precedent.  Expect a suspension to come soon.
