VIDEO: "Don't [bleeping] touch [John Tavares]" Discretion Advised (NSFW)

The Islanders could do almost no wrong last night in their win in Philadelphia. The game got pretty heated at times; John Tavares decked Max Talbot, PA Parenteau took a pretty good shot and was that really Dylan Reese fighting Claude Giroux?!

In one of the scrums during the second period the Flyers roughly face washed John Tavares after a sequence in front of the Isles’ net (JT91 in deep playing defense, of course). Linemates Kyle Okposo, Matt Moulson and Mark Streit came to Tavares’ aid and MSG’s mics caught some colorful language from what appears to be Okposo as he gets tied up with Brayden Schenn. It’s not the easiest thing to hear but around the 15-second mark there’s a very audible line, probably picked up by the goal cam on the top of the glass.

“If you [bleepin] touch him again, I’ll [bleepin] kill you.”

The him, of course, is likely Tavares. There’s been a lot of water cooler talk about how this team defends itself on the ice without Michael Haley and Trevor Gillies on the roster. Part of that has been from Matt Martin stepping up. Other parts have been what we’ve seen here tonight, a collection of guys who are genuinely standing up for each other.

Fair warning: Parental discretion advised in the video due to strong language.

Heck, while we’re at it here’s a bonus video. JT91 knocking Max Talbot down like it’s no big thing.
