Neiler Stirring the Pot

From the Ottawa Sun

There was an incident in the hallway near the end of the game. Buffalo’s Adam Mair, who had been booted out, marched down the hallway screaming for Chris Neil and had to be restrained. Senators winger Jarrko Ruutu chirped back, but Mair returned to his dressing room because Neil was still on the ice.

I remember Neil skating by Mair and Mair immediately turning to go after Neil.  I thought it strange at the time because Neil barely touched Mair.  Is it possible Neil has a bit of Sean Avery in him?  I know guys chirp all the time, but Mair’s reaction and subsequent actions suggest Neil said something more than “you’re a pussy”. 

In any event, this matchup just got a bit hotter!

Power Plays:  One thing I meant to mention last night, was just the stark difference in how easy it was for the Sabres to get set up on the power play and how much difficulty the Senators had with the same task.
