Mike Komisarek acting like a baby
Halfway through the Canucks 3-2 win over the Hurricanes in Carolina on Sunday, Brad Richardson and Mike Komisarek exchanged slashes in front of the Carolina net before Richardson dropped his gloves in anticipation of a fight.
Unfortunately, Komisarek had other plans. In a move some might call brilliant and others might call cowardly, the Carolina defenseman kept his gloves on and Richardson was left shaking his head on the way to the penalty box to serve a minor penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct.
Canucks fans were enraged, as was Kevin Bieksa on the Canucks’ bench. This wasn’t the first time that Komisarek pulled this kind of tactic, as I was reminded by @DimFilipovic:
Well at least Komisarek dropped his gloves and engaged (before getting beaten up).
The cameras cut to Komisarek taunting and making cry baby faces at the Canucks bench, providing me with this screen cap and tweet:
