Derek Dorsett tries to intimidate Islanders' bench with funny faces

What is happening here? And why is it happening?

If nothing else we can remember the Islanders' 5-3 win over the Rangers on Friday night for when making the funny faces at the other team's bench became a new strategy.

Here, during a random live shot of MSG's John Giannone between the benches, we are treated to Derek Dorsett of the Rangers standing on his bench and giving the Islanders bench the stink eye. The only thing this is missing is him actually smashing his face against the glass.
