St. Louis Blues goaltender Jordan Binnington surprised many when he admitted to throwing a bottle of water at Nazem Kadri. Kadri spoke to TNT after the game and then confirmed that he believes Binnington threw the bottle.
“Yeah, I think it was Binnington.
But I was a little tied up, so you’ll have to ask him,” Kadri told the reporters after the game. “I think it was him. I don’t know for sure”. Jordan Binnington was obviously angry about the injury he left the match for earlier and one of the culprits for that is Kadri “I went to get my knee checked out, midgame.
I was coming back to the rink. The game just ended. Walking down the hallway, I couldn’t find a recycling bin on my way down the hallway."

Binnington was provoked after realizing that Kadri was laughing and seemed to be happy after the match.
"Right before I walked into the locker room, I see him kind of doing an interview there. Smiling, laughing there, and I’m there in a knee brace limping down the hallway,” Binnington said, as quoted by ESPN.com.
He made many laugh with his statement about throwing the bottle, because as he says it was 'God given opportunity' Still, hockey is a sport that can sometimes lead to things like this, just like any other. The desire to win, and the desire for revenge lead to situations like this.
“I just felt like it was a God-given opportunity. I don’t know, I could just stay silent and go in the room or I could say something and just have him look me in the eye and understand what’s going on. [Give him] something to think about.
Yeah, I just threw the water bottle. An empty water bottle. It landed like 2 feet from him. It is what it is there. It’s hockey and it’s a competitive game. So, that’s it”.
