Post: Russians from Columbus nearly provoked a mass brawl at an NHL game


Chinakhov, Voronkov and Marchenko started fight with Ottawa players during NHL game

MOSCOW, December 2 – RIA Novosti. Columbus Blue Jackets host the Ottawa Senators in a National Hockey League (NHL) regular season game.

In the third period of the match against Ottawa, a fight broke out between Russian Columbus forwards Yegor Chinakhov, Dmitry Voronkov and Kirill Marchenko, who were playing in the same trio. The incident started when visiting German striker Tim Stützle pushed Chinakhov, and the Russian responded by hitting his opponent’s legs with his stick. Following this blow, two Senators players, Swede Erik Brännström and Canadian Travis Hamonic, attacked Chinakhov.

Voronkov and Marchenko immediately sided with their compatriots. Marchenko pushed Brennström away and Voronkov nearly got into a fight with Hamonic and another Canadian, Matthew Joseph, who confronted the already prone Voronkov, who lost his helmet.

As a result of the episode, only Yegor Chinakhov, who received a minor penalty for hitting himself with a stick, was punished.

At the time of writing, Columbus was defeating Ottawa with a score of 4:2. Voronkov scored the goal for the Blue Jackets, and Russian defenseman Ivan Provorov also provided the assist.
