Red Wings vs. Kings: Jimmy Howard gets pushy with Los Angeles

Stephen Dunn

Don't get in Jimmy Howard's crease. He will attack you.

Goalies are crazy. We all know this. But Jimmy Howard is a special kind of crazy, because he's willing to take on an entire team when he's angry.

Los Angeles Kings forward Kyle Clifford ticked Howard off when he went crashing into the net, resulting in some personal justice from Howard himself.


Predictably, the Kings were not happy with this. But when they tried to get in Howard's grill, he gave it right back.


It didn't end there! During the TV timeout, Howard tried to pick a fight with Kings goalie Jonathan Quick, his teammate on Team USA.


We were that close to American-on-American goalie violence. Sorry, Canada.
