Video: After calling out Briere, Glass fights Flyers’ Simmonds

Feb 20, 2013, 9:03 PM EDT

It appears Tanner Glass has drawn Philadelphia’s ire.

Shortly after blasting Flyers forward Daniel Briere as one of the NHL’s dirtiest players, Glass got into it with Philly’s Wayne Simmonds during the first period of Wednesdays’ ‘Rivalry Night’ game:

It was quite the first period in Pittsburgh as the two teams combined for four goals, 26 penalty minutes and 28 shots on net.

The score was tied 2-2 after the opening frame.

    With an elbow haha

      Aw, boo hoo, no one cares about my Sharks. I will just bash the Flyers. If Braydon Coburn farted, there would be an article. Go look for a site that posts an articles about the Sharks and take your inane comments with you.

    I think it’s funny how Milbury thinks Giroux’s elbow to Engelland’s face was funny and proves “he’s a terrific Captain” but if Adams did it in the neutral zone that’s wrong…hmmmm…

    • phillyphanatic77 - Feb 20, 2013 at 9:25 PM

      Milbury dislikes the Pens as much as Mcguire loves em.

      • eigglesnosuperbowls - Feb 20, 2013 at 9:30 PM

        Even Tony Granato pens bench coach is annoying !

      • jimw81 - Feb 20, 2013 at 11:02 PM

        did anyone hear Milbury say Crosby and Malk playing on crack?

      • phillyphanatic77 - Feb 20, 2013 at 11:37 PM

        He wasn;t calling them crackheads, althouth Im sure Pittsburgh fans and pundits will somehow equate it to: “Milbury calls Crosby and Malkin crackheads.” and itll get blown completely out of proportion. Their constant need for an north-south style prompted that comment. Malkin and Crosby are fiends for the stretch pass and so on. That’s what was meant. He in no way called them crack addicts

      • hockeywithdrawal - Feb 21, 2013 at 9:17 AM

        He should be removed from the booth, then beaten into a coma.

    • eigglesnosuperbowls - Feb 20, 2013 at 9:37 PM

      I think its funny how the pens fans have worse teeth than the players ahhahahahahahahhahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahah!

      • hockeywithdrawal - Feb 20, 2013 at 11:19 PM

        Ummm…..wtf? pot? kettle?

      • eigglesnosuperbowls - Feb 21, 2013 at 6:35 AM

        and the horn sounds and the flyers win again

      • hockeywithdrawal - Feb 21, 2013 at 7:40 AM

        Not upset with that disgrace…two fluke goals, and the Pens falling for the same dirty tricks from the same players that disgrace the game night in and night out…Cryer hockey is horrible to watch. There has never been a team more embarassing to any sport.

      • eigglesnosuperbowls - Feb 21, 2013 at 4:40 PM

        stick and dive went into full effect about a quarter of the way through the 3rd I must admit the tactic worked but in the end the hockey gods awarded the win to the deserving underdog flyguys ,,,,,,,,,,,,niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice !

      • hockeywithdrawal - Feb 22, 2013 at 3:34 PM

        Thanks for the update – you’re talking about the Thursday loss to Florida, right?

  4. phillyphanatic77 - Feb 20, 2013 at 9:21 PM

    Man PHT makes a living off pitting these two franchises against eachother. Not that we wouldn’t be doing it anyway, but they can’t help themselves with Pens-Flyers posts.

    PS Tanner Glass is a tool.

  5. sjsharks66 - Feb 20, 2013 at 9:26 PM

    @withdrawl

    I know right, great leadership by the captain. Then a penalty on adams for a non existing elbow.

  6. chanceoffleury1 - Feb 20, 2013 at 9:26 PM

    It was actually a pretty smart play by Glass. It got Simmonds off the ice, and he’s been the best Flyer on the ice tonight. He’s having a great game.Get their best player off the ice, and all it cost the Pens was getting a very “ehhh” guy getting put in the box. Glass doesn’t bring a ton to the table, so this is the kind of smart play he makes to contribute to the team.

    • phillyphanatic77 - Feb 20, 2013 at 9:32 PM

      Solid point. But Schenn was getting called for a penalty anyway so Simmonds may not have been out there 4 on 4. Still a good move to get Simmonds off for 5 minutes.

  7. pensfan603 - Feb 20, 2013 at 9:31 PM

    I feel like simmonds is the only player who showed up for this game, the flyers need more players like him, who will push their hardest Night in and Night out, as an NHL fan its hard not to root for players like that.

    • hockeywithdrawal - Feb 21, 2013 at 8:04 AM

      No, it’s really not.

  8. orangeandblack67 - Feb 20, 2013 at 9:37 PM

    Maybe if Adams were able to take a hit like a man he wouldn’t have to get his elbow up to protect himself.

  9. orangeandblack67 - Feb 20, 2013 at 9:38 PM

    Let me guess you girls will complain about another non whistle on that one too.

  10. friedberg7 - Feb 20, 2013 at 9:54 PM

    McGuire is about to have an orgasm talking about Laviolette.

  11. philly4lyfe - Feb 20, 2013 at 10:02 PM

    I love watching neal go down like a ton of bricks as rustts stick barely grazes him. but I guess sid does lead by example when it comes to that.

    • dmfc1112 - Feb 20, 2013 at 10:40 PM

      That is pretty amazing how dramatic Neal is. he is quickly rising to the top of my list for most hated Penguin. He did get an interference call tonight on a play very similar to his cheapshot on Couturier last playoffs.

      • hockeywithdrawal - Feb 21, 2013 at 8:06 AM

        I would have LOVED to have seen him lay that same hit on Couturier last night, when he was cross-checking Malkin in the back over and over. Someone needed to annihilate that dirty little as*hole. What Malkin did was not enough.

    • jpelle82 - Feb 20, 2013 at 10:43 PM

      i didnt see crosby go down once tonight, wtf are you talking about?

      • dmfc1112 - Feb 20, 2013 at 11:05 PM

        Where is the word Crosby in the above 2 Comments???

      • bdawk20 - Feb 20, 2013 at 11:14 PM

        You must not have followed Crosby to the men’s bathroom after the game then….

  12. drewsylvania - Feb 20, 2013 at 10:22 PM

    Completely ridiculous game that I almost need to see again in order to keep track of all the **** that happened.

    • drewsylvania - Feb 20, 2013 at 10:44 PM

      I’m a Bruins fan….

    • drewsylvania - Feb 20, 2013 at 10:51 PM

      And you Pens fans sure are full of sour grapes.

      • ibieiniid - Feb 21, 2013 at 8:49 AM

        ya dude seems like every pens fan got mad and went down the list thumbs downing EVERYTHING on this story. weird.

  13. ynothockey - Feb 20, 2013 at 10:28 PM

    That was an awesome game.

  14. gbditka - Feb 20, 2013 at 10:44 PM

    Tomas Vokoun…proof the Pens spent too much on a few marquis players

  15. jimw81 - Feb 20, 2013 at 11:03 PM

    nhl needs these two teams to play each other in playoffs…..

    • hockeywithdrawal - Feb 21, 2013 at 8:13 AM

      The only problem is that one of the teams isn’t in the top 8. But I’m sure the NHL will find a way.

      • ibieiniid - Feb 21, 2013 at 8:51 AM

        there’s 2/3 of a season left dipsh–. you don’t hafta let your fear of another Pens/Flyers series be THAT obvious.

      • hockeywithdrawal - Feb 21, 2013 at 9:01 AM

        You’re so incredibly dumb.

  16. betrayedbylife - Feb 21, 2013 at 1:24 AM

    i really hate these “rivalry nights”. every time i watch one of these games it feels like i’ve got the local 14 year old gossip queen letting me know about the fight that’s going down after school. just let the game unfold.

  17. crimson1b - Feb 21, 2013 at 6:36 AM

    First I love hockey at all levels, including those that do not allow fighting. I attend the high school hockey tournament every year in MN, I love attending gopher games, at both the current and previous marriuci arenas. But, that was a great fight! Fighting does not make hockey for me, but it adds to the experience! Wish NHL wise here in MN we had a rival like that, we did (Blackhawks, north stars-Blackhawks bigger than any current rivalry), until Norm Green did what he did, and his wife at time said move the team or else.
