Video: Leafs’ Bodie drops the gloves twice

Dec 16, 2013, 9:21 PM EST

Troy Bodie had a pair of eventful shifts, despite just over a combined two minutes of ice time through two periods Monday.

The Toronto Maple Leafs winger dropped the gloves not once, but twice against the Pittsburgh Penguins. He first fought Robert Bortuzzo late in the opening period, then squared off with Zach Sill midway through the second.

His fight with Bortuzzo came after Bodie delivered a hard but what appeared to be a clean hit on the Penguins’ defenseman in the corner.

    Another head shot in this game from the gutless Penguins. How many more will they be allowed before the NHL begins penalizing them like they deserve?

      Gutless? Two different guys got in a fight for the Pen, that’s not a gutless team.

      Your right that guy got his butt whooped twice but I’m pretty sure he invited the head shots when he dropped the gloves haha

      bortuzzo is 6’5. el amigo is maybe 6′ 1″ is bortuzzo supposed to pick and choose who he checks. get some hockey knowledge, then get a life.

        Bodie is 6’4″ 220. Bortuzzo is 6’4″ 215. Even tilt.

    Im pretty sure he received a 2 minute penalty for a hit to the head… Thus being penalized.

    And then proceeded to get his ass whooped not once but twice.

    When you skate hunched with your head down, you’re going to get hit. Pens remain the shining example of class and skill in the nhl. Someday, a Canadian team might learn to play with the same respect and dominance as the pens, but for now they remain lowly and sad.

      sweepcity0for4 quite the shining example the last four postseasons.

    Yep, Edmonton has been racking up number one picks the way the Pens did. Another few years and they will be the “shining example”. Hah

      we were around for a helluva long time through many lean years. are we suppose to apologize for that. thats what the draft is for donny boy.

    Apology accepted ;-)

    Seems like the every Pens player knows how to fight. They never lose, unless its a cheap shot from behind (Thornton).
