Pronger does not get suspended for his fight with Handzus

At the end of last night’s game between the Ducks and Kings, Michal Handzus shot the puck after the buzzer had sounded at the end of overtime. Chris Pronger went over to Handzus to have a word or two with him and Handzus took a swipe at Pronger. Pronger responded in a terribly one-sided mismatch of a fight. The referees sent both men off to their respective dressing rooms with identical fighting and misconduct penalties. Pronger got an extra 2:00 for instigating. The instigating penalty carried with it an automatic one game suspension and $10,000 fine for the coach. Anaheim was able to appeal to the League, and Brian Burke chose to do so after the game.

The players and fans knew what type of game to expect from these cross-town rivals, and they provided just that. The game was quick, full of hard hits, and the occasional fight. Although the fights came from some different Ducks (Todd Marchant and Chris Pronger).
