Logan Mailloux doesn’t appreciate the hit on Easton Cowan, mixes it up at the end of a Knights win. Say what you will about Mailloux, he goes to bat for his teammates.

Last night, Logan Mailloux and the London Knights were in front of their home fans for Game #5 of their OHL third-round series. The Knights face the Sarnia Sting, and the series was 2-2 going into yesterday’s game.
In actual fact, the CH defenseman didn’t have a great game in terms of offensive production, collecting only a (secondary) assist on his team’s goal in an empty net. That said, he helped his club win 5-2 to take a 3-2 series lead.
And that’s the most important thing of all.
But on the empty-net goal, Mailloux was noticed for more than just his assist. On the sequence, his teammate Easton Cowan was the victim of a good check from Sasha Pastujov, and the CH defenseman obviously didn’t like it, and went to tell him how he felt.
In reality, we agree that the timing of the sending off was not bad. His team had already won and Mailloux preferred to defend his teammate. That’s not as bad as it would have been if the Knights had been deprived of his services midway through the first period while trailing by two goals, let’s say.
A bit of an overreaction ahead by three late goals? → https://t.co/kKBUtuCLCv

I really don’t expect Mailloux to be suspended for what he did yesterday, that said. In fact, let’s just say I’d be very surprised if it happened.
