Watch Zdeno Chara One-Punch Cedric Paquette of the Lightning (Video)
Most NHL players tend to think twice before challenging Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara to a fight. And those who didn’t before tonight probably will now after watching Zdeno Chara one-punch Cedric Paquette.
Obviously Paquette was among that small group of players who wouldn’t think twice before challenging Chara, and when he did just that during Tuesday night’s game at the TD Garden in Boston, he paid for it with a straight right to the face that dropped him to the ice like a sack of potatoes.
Chara received two-minutes for boarding on the play along with four minutes for roughing, while Paquette was assessed two-minutes of his own for getting punched in the face—though, for the sake of keeping things simple, the refs just called it “roughing.”
