Dustin Byfuglien didn't care for Steve Downie's goal

New, comments

The Winnipeg Jets defenseman might hear from the NHL about his late hit.

We all know how irritating Pittsburgh Penguins forward Steve Downie can be for players on opposing teams. Now imagine what it's like when he scores a breakaway goal against your team.

Winnipeg Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien didn't have to imagine it as it happened right in front of his face and he didn't care for it very much at all.

Of course, after you score a goal, you get the last laugh, and that's exactly what Downie did.

The joke could be on Byfuglien as delivering a bad hit well after a goal has never gone over very well in NHL history. Perhaps NHL Player Safety will be giving Byfuglien a call for his post-goal shove.
