New York Rangers: Watch Brandon Dubinsky Slam a Gatorade Bucket After Ejection

Adam Graham@@adam_grahamAnalyst IIApril 15, 2012

The intensity level in Game 2 of the opening round of the NHL playoffs between the New York Rangers and Ottawa Senators just got amped up.

At the 2:15 mark of the first period, Senators tough guy Matt Carkner, who is 6'4" and 237 pounds, delivered a solid check on the even larger Brian Boyle (6'7" and 244 pounds) of the Rangers. No one seemed to have a problem with that until Carkner proceeded to pummel Boyle down to the ice unexpectedly.

Boyle did not fight back, and as Carkner continued to throw punches, Brandon Dubinsky stepped in as the third man. Watch the full video of the brawl below:

Carkner received two minutes for roughing, five minutes for fighting and was also ejected for his actions, while Dubinsky received two minutes for roughing and a game misconduct.

Clearly Dubinsky was angry because he felt that he shouldn't have been tossed from the game for being the third man in during a fight, when Boyle wasn't fighting back to begin with. As a result, Dubinsky took his frustration out on the Gatorade bucket.

As awesome as that was, I can't help but wish he had tossed it onto the ice, even though he would have likely been suspended for doing so.
