Video: Isles’ Tavares spears Zidlicky

Screen Shot 2014-12-15 at 10.09.43 PM

New York Islanders captain John Tavares took exception to a hit from Marek Zidlicky late in the third period Monday night and responded with a spear to the midsection of the Devils defenseman.

Tavares was assessed a minor penalty for slashing despite an obvious spear.

Zidlicky said Tavares’ spear hurt him “a little bit the first couple seconds. He hit my stomach, but I’m OK.”
