Bruins announcer calls out Chris Stewart for fighting Torey Krug

Wednesday, January 27, 2016 11:45:00 AM America/Los_Angeles

Torey Krug has been a very productive defenseman for the Boston Bruins since he became a regular in their lineup during the 2012-13 postseason.

Listed at only 5-9, 186 pounds, he is also one of the smallest defenders in the league and isn't really known for his physical play.

So it was kind of a surprise he found himself in a fight with a much larger person (Chris Stewart, listed at 6-2, 231 pounds) in the first period of Tuesday's game against the Anaheim Ducks.

Predictably, it did not go very well for him, and Bruins announcer Jack Edwards didn't seem to appreciate Stewart's willingness to go after a player he had a significant size advantage over.

Not only is Stewart several inches taller and nearly 50 pounds heavier than Krug, he also has significantly more experience fighting people in the NHL.

Before that fight Krug was only involved in three fights in his NHL career and only one in the American Hockey League and had only recorded 68 penalty minutes in 208 regular season games.

That doesn't even get into the fact that Krug wasn't even really involved in the original altercation that led to tempers flaring around the net, which was David Perron pushing Kevan Miller into Bruins goalie Jonas Gustavsson.

So, yeah ... Chris Stewart probably should have been called out for trying to fight Torey Krug.
