The top two teams in the KHL faced off Thursday evening with SKA besting CSKA 4-3 and maintaining their lead atop the Western Conference. Taking the defeat hard was CSKA captain Alex Radulov, who ended up earning a one-game suspension when all was said and done.
After SKA tied the game 1-1 with a power play goal in the first period, Radulov was upset at the officials, earning himself a 10-minute misconduct. He continued raging on once inside the penalty box, much to the annoyance of the St. Petersburg Ice Palace penalty box attendant:
Here she was probably thinking it’d just be another day of being a penalty box attendant: opening and closing the door for rule breakers and handing out towels. Instead, she has to shield herself from swinging sticks, flying water bottles and one angry Russian.
Once he calmed down, Radulov recorded a goal and an assist in the loss and was named CSKA player of the game. But his anger persisted after the final buzzer as he was handed a game-misconduct, earning a one-game ban.
I know what you're saying: Alex Radulov, anger problem? Nahhhhhhhhhh.
