As a team, the Boston Bruins set a season-high in penalty minutes with 28 in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Minnesota Wild at TD Garden.
More than half of those minutes were allotted to Bruins center Trent Frederic, who amassed 16 penalties in minutes in just 7:05 of ice time against the Wild.
Frederic had two fighting majors that were both accompanied by minor penalties, as well as a third minor which accounted for his total. It was a sequence in the second period in which Frederic may have gone a little too far with his physical play, when he received a minor penalty for boarding Kirill Kaprizov -- causing the reigning Calder Trophy winner to leave the game -- and subsequently dropped the gloves with Dmitry Kulikov.
Was Frederic's hit on Kaprizov over the line?
Given that Frederic has no suspension history, coupled with the fact that he only received a minor in the game, it's unlikely he'll face further discipline for the infraction. But that's not to say it's something he should be making a habit of, either, especially when he's contributing so little on the offensive end.
