Artem Anisimov’s Gun-Shooting Goal Celebration a Disgrace to Hockey


New York Rangers forward Artem Anisimov caused quite the stir on Thursday night with his unique goal celebration. And while opinions on it vary, there's plenty of people who feel it was a bit over the top.

Anisimov scored in the second period against the Lightning, and he proceeded to use his stick to mime shooting a gun. He did so right in the direction of the net and Tampa Bay's Vincent Lecavalier. The Lightning, of course, took exception and went after Anisimov.

NESN's Dale Arnold, Gord Kluzak and Barry Pederson discussed the incident during Big Bad Bruins Live on Saturday. And let's just say they aren't big fans of Anisimov's actions.
