Bolts’ Gudas ejected for wild slash against Panthers’ bench

- October 27th, 2013

Tampa Bay Lightning defenceman Radko Gudas took a vicious swing at Florida’s bench Sunday night.

Ejected for his actions, Gudas was reportedly coaxed into lashing out at his opponents after Panthers winger Scottie Upshall doused him with a water bottle.

Gudas, who had fallen to the ice in front of the home side’s bench didn’t appreciate the bath and immediately got up and swung his stick in the direction of Florida’s players.

For instigating the brouhaha, Upshall received an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty while Gudas received a misconduct and game misconduct for his response.

The Lightning held on despite going a man down, knocking off their in-state rival 4-3 in a shootout.
