J.T. Miller gets match penalty for fighting with taped hands

J. T. Miller got a match penalty for intent to injure after fighting Sergey Kalinin with taped up fists.

If the NHL held its own Academy Awards, J.T. Miller might win best costume design.

The New York Rangers forward dropped the gloves with New Jersey Devils forward Sergey Kalinin Tuesday, revealing a taped right hand that got him thrown from the game.

You can’t do that.

Miller scored the takedown but left his team with a five-minute major to kill off in the third period. The Devils ended up killing it off.

It wasn’t quite this version of “putting on the foil,” but Miller will have plenty of time to go to the (dressing room) box and feel shame.
