Steve Downie Kisses Andrew Ference (Video)
When the Tampa Bay Lightning lost Game 5 to the Bruins and allowed Boston to take a 3-2 Eastern Conference Finals lead, Steve Downie sat on the bench by himself for a few minutes after the game. Perhaps he was still baffled by the goal Tim Thomas robbed him of. Maybe he was just pissed his team was pushed to the brink of elimination. He also could have been trying to create montage-type material for a future highlight reel. Whatever the case, Downie seemed to be in better spirits during the Lightning’s Game 6 win in Tampa Wednesday night. Check out the video of Steve Downie kissing Andrew Ference, courtesy of Puck Daddy:
Ference is no angel (see: flipping off Candiens fans), but he should have skated away. No one likes to back down and look like a pansy, but when the opponent is trying to plant one on you the rules change a bit. Meanwhile, Downie has now successfully managed to look like a tool at the end of two straight games.
