Boston Bruins forward Taylor Hall, decided to comment on the incident when Nathan MacKinnon was hit by Tayor Hall during the match. There was a lot of noise about it, and Taylor Hall decided to talk about the incident "Looking back, ...
maybe I just drop the gloves with (Gabriel) Landeskog and get it over with," Hall told reporters via a Zoom call on Friday. "And then I'm able to kind of play the rest of the game without as big a target on my back." "And then I'm able to kind of play the rest of the game without as big a target on my back." Avs' captain Landeskog reacted violently and approached aggressively and grabbed Hall immediately after that move.
However, Taylor Hall obviously wanted to avoid an even bigger incident and acted calmly. "If I could get one or two power plays out of them, I thought that would help our team more than me fighting," he said.
Taylor Hall explains his reaction
Taylor Hall himself says that he did not want things to happen that way, and that his move was not intentional, but the sport is such that even in situations where you do not want to hurt anyone, it can easily happen "But I don't know, it's hockey.
Someone told me one time, never fight on someone else's terms. So, I'm not a fighter by any stretch of the imagination. It was a clean hit, it was a hockey hit." It was not an easy night for him, but time passes, and they will have to forget about it and shift the focus to helping their team and the next games that await them.
"I never want to see anyone leave the game, and certainly my intention was to just end the play when he had the puck there. I didn't want to see him bloodied or anything like that, so it was a bit of a stressful night for the rest of the game there, just a weird night overall."
