Artem Anisimov Uses Gun-Shooting Goal Celebration Against Lightning, Brawl Breaks Out (Video)

Artem Anisimov Uses Gun-Shooting Goal Celebration Against Lightning, Brawl Breaks Out (Video)New York Rangers forward Artem Anisimov scored a goal on Thursday night. No big deal, right? Not usually, no. What followed that goal, however, is going to have people talking for awhile.

Anisimov scored his fifth goal of the season (35th of his career) against the Lightning at Madison Square Garden on Thursday, and after scoring the goal, the 23-year-old went to one knee and mimed shooting a gun. The "shots" were apparently aimed at Tampa Bay's Vincent Lecavalier

That did not go well.

What followed was a bit of on-ice brawl in which Tampa's Steve Downie even came off the bench for.
