And, Wednesday night, Pacioretty certainly didn't help Zdeno Chara, as his incendiary interview with Bob McKenzie of TSN in which he outright accused him of intent to injure:
"I heard (Chara) said he didn't mean to do it. I felt he did mean to do it. I would feel better if he said he made a mistake and that he was sorry for doing that, I could forgive that, but I guess he's talking about how I jumped up or something."
"I believe he was trying to guide my head into the turnbuckle. We all know where the turnbuckle is. It wasn't a head shot like a lot of head shots we see but I do feel he targeted my head into the turnbuckle."
That motherfucker is HUGE. 6'9". UGH.
