Scott Hartnell is a pretty good hockey player, and he seems like a friendly enough guy off the ice. The problem he runs into from time to time is that he has a tendency to do some really dumb things on the ice.
This little sequence after Jonathan Toews scored a goal to give Chicago a 5-2 lead in the second period on Wednesday night qualifies as something really dumb.
This is the second time in a week we've had to ask this, but what are you doing, Scott Hartnell?
He was given a two-minute minor for roughing on the play. So not only was his team down three goals in the second period, they also had to kill off a penalty immediately after that.
