Buchnevich game misconduct for crosschecking Mantha in face
NY Rangers’ Pavel Buchnevich will have a hearing today for High-sticking Washington’s Anthony Mantha.
Pavel Buchnevich gets a major for cross-checking Anthony Mantha and a game misconduct #NYR
Pavel Buchnevich just jumped to deliver a cross-check to Anthony Mantha's face. He's gonna be suspended for a lonnnnnnnnnnnng time.
just remember that Pavel Buchnevich shouldn’t receive any supplemental discipline today because Mantha engaged him in a post whistle scrum. so whatever Buch did was just old time hockey and if Mantha couldn’t handle what happened...oh well that’s just hockey. 🤷🏼♂️
Let's be honest. Mantha was about to cross-check Buchnevich and got beat to it. He was looking for trouble and found it.
This is what it looks like when you want the players to handle things. Especially players who aren't going to do it via fighting.
Blame the league https://t.co/xQzdhWBfnz
No todo quedó en lo anterior. Más tarde en el partido lo vemos a don Buchnevich, el que casi la queda el lunes cuando Wilson lo tiró de las mechas, cruzarse con Anthony Mantha en una de las mejores acciones de la noche:
I usually agree with Jeff, but I'm not sure I follow the logic here. Buchnevich would not have had to cross check Mantha (a player who is not Wilson) in the face if Wilson had been suspended for this game? https://t.co/rBVByNfJ8v
People out here saying Wilson punched Buchnevich 7 times and that Mantha viscously slasher Buch several times and wonder why we can’t take you seriously
Anthony Mantha did the hockey equivalent of poking Pavel Buchnevich and some would like you to believe that warranted a leaping cross-check to the face in response.
Again, this was really never about making player safety better, was it...
Also if buch is suspended capital fans and the nhl are hypocrites because get what mantha was chasing him all shift and went back at him after the whistle. I see all this self defense arguments for Wilson well that’s just exactly what buch then suck my dick
yeah no mantha had nothing to do with anything idk why buch went after him
just wait for Buchnevich to get 2-5 games for his cross check on Mantha last night. Best sport, worst league. The @NHL
Wasn't a cross check... bad optics but left hand wasn't on the stick. It was a punch with the stick in his hand. So a marginal high stick at best and a roughing minor. Beat Mantha to the punch .. so to speak.
Buch went for a dude’s head, definitely warrants a hearing and a fine. But let’s not forget 2 things. 1) this all would have been avoided with a suspension on Tuesday and 2) Mantha turned away from the play to go after Buch and Buch was quicker.
Mantha followed him after he turned him down and was about to cross check him he was just slow. I’d of done the same thing. NHL looks bush league for not dealing with this on Tuesday. None of this happens if Wilson gets 1 game. George Parros fucked up.
Yes and no. I’ve watched star replay multiple times. He hit mantha with a clean hit along the boards and he was upset right away. Pushed his head down and followed him slashing his legs. Puck went up the other way and he completely turned around to go over buch. It looked like
@Suprarush @KurtLeavins @LanceMaxwell2
And plenty of stick work of the buch nature to mantha and no call, tons of that example. Fights occur mainly because liberties are taken and officials don’t make calls. We saw that last night.

Dirty? Gives Mantha a clean hit Mantha doesn't like it gives him 1 shot follows him and get 4 slashes to the back of the knee in goes after him again and got what he got this is what happens when you make poor calls as a league
Buchnevich’s crosscheck on Mantha—in itself suspension worthy—is further proof that violence begets violence and that, by forcing players to police themselves, the NHL has allowed a dangerous situation to escalate into even worse territory
Buch has to be smarter. Using your stick like that is dangerous. It's one thing to give Wilson a hack. He deserved it. But the thing with Mantha was dumb. He's had a good season.
Stick work ! Mantha does just that repeatedly and buch comes with the stick too, did they fight, I didn’t see one. Buch took shoots to his head/shoulder whatever, what stick work required Wilson to do that. You need to take the stick work argument to the refs who don’t call it. https://t.co/tA61b2wkLn
Only one hand on the stick. Meanwhile Mantha's hands are both on the stick, crosschecking to the chest. Take the L.
Also in that game... Buchnevich wanted revenge... Anthony Mantha provoked him and then challenged him... Buchnevich received a game misconduct for smacking him in the face with a high stick... again.. all could've been avoided if NHL DOPS did its job...
Should be $5000 fine. The NHL is responsible for this. Mantha was about to cross-check Buchnevich who was faster than him to do so. If Wilson’s circus would have been dealt properly none of this would have happened.
Not condoning his high stick put Mantha was looking for it well before and then at the end come back looking for more. So not faulting him for getting his hand and stick up when someone is coming at him
