Already down a four-spot with 20 minutes to play, Bradford ran goalie Brad Thiessen while he was covering a puck amidst a scrum. The intent was clear as day, and it sparked a vicious tangle in the Northeastern net with black and white sweaters swinging and grappling for all they were worth.
In the end, NU’s Denis Chisolm ended up paying the biggest price, earning a five-minute major for punching and a game disqualification, ruling him out of Friday’s game against Merrimack.
Teammate Joe Vitale and Eagle Cam Atkinson each received minors for hitting after the whistle, and Bradford was assessed a major for charging.
So in the end, lots of minutes, but no power plays resulted. 5-1 Huskies after 2.
