Last night the New York Rangers hosted the Chicago Blackhawks in what turned out to be a huge unexpected 5-2 win for the Blackhawks. But the score of that game is not what people have been talking about today.

Late in the second period, Andreas Athanasiou was talking the puck up the ice when Rangers captain Jacob Trouba caught him with a huge hit, which sent Athanasiou hard to the ice. Jonathan Toews immediately came to Athanasiou defence and it started a line brawl.
Today in an interview with the Chicago Sun Times, Athanasiou went off on Trouba:
«That guy is known for hitting high, not really worrying about the puck out there and almost trying to hurt people, That's his game; that's what he does. He's an $8 million man with zero goals, so he has to figure out how to do something when making that much. If you can't help the team, I guess you try to hurt guys on the other team.»

«It was a weird play, The puck was there. He could've made a play on the puck. Instead it's like he had an intent to try to hurt somebody. He's been known to do that. You have to know when he's on the ice, and he got me there.»
