Andrew Shaw Gets Penalty, Breaks Stuff, Swears A Lot

Andrew Shaw had scored the Canadiens’ first goal with two minutes left in Tuesday’s game against the Ducks, but he hampered Montreal’s chances at tying when he received a hooking penalty with 27 seconds left. Shaw took his rage out on his stick—and eventually, a bunch of other sticks.

Shaw tried to smash his twig against the glass, and finished the job by snapping it over his knee. He followed that up with a bunch of words that included multiple uses of “fuck.”

Since Shaw was being such a nuisance in the penalty box, officials handed him a game misconduct to get him out of the game for good. As he walked through the tunnel, he took a swing at the stick rack, scattering the equipment.


The Canadiens lost, 2-1, all because Shaw didn’t punch enough sticks.
