New York Islanders forward Leo Komarov threw a dirty cheap shot during a 3-2 Monday night loss to the Bruins.
For some unexplainable reasons, Komarov jabbed David Pastrnak with the end of his stick following the whistle, and his actions ignited a minor scrum. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
Pastrnak also hit the ice as he was shaken up grabbing the area around his diaphragm. You can watch the incredibly stupid cheap shot below.

What the hell was Komarov thinking? Seriously, why did he do that? There was no reason for that nonsense.
These days in the NHL, we just have idiots like Tom Wilson and this guy running around doing whatever they want.

Pastrnak’s teammates also clearly weren’t pleased because they jumped right into action to defend him. In the NHL, actions have immediate consequences.
This isn’t the NBA. You do something stupid and you will pay a price.

If you’re going to throw cheap shots in the NHL, then you better be ready to fight because it’s 100% coming.
