As expected on Saturday night there was a lot of hard hits and some fights during the game. Jimmy Bonneau and Jon Mirasty have had some of the best fights all season and wrapped things up with another good one. Anyone who follows AHL hockey knows how much a lot of people dislike Kevin Harvey so it was not surprising to see him in a fight, this time against Andrew Lord.
Lord should have no problems getting invited to a training camp somewhere next season.
The only video I don’t currently have is what happened with about eight seconds left in the second period. Earlier in the period Carl Hudson hit Maksim Mayorov hard into the boards and Mayorov appeared to go to the bench injured. As the period was coming to an end Mirasty went after Hudson, didn’t get anything going, he then went after Michael Caruso and then pulled Jordan Henry out of the mixup and tried to fight him. As Mirasty punched Caruso the Amerks bench jumped up to his defense. As Mirasty pulled Henry down the boards it was of no surprise that Harvey reached over the boards and appeared to get in a couple shots at Henry.
After the game Mirasty said told Lindsay Kramer of Syracuse.com, “There’s history to the teams,” Mirasty said. “It was just a little bit of a payback. I wanted to take liberties on their skill players. I didn’t expect to get kicked out.”
Taking liberties on skilled players.. real classy.
Here’s the videos…
