This is what Brad MacMillan had to say about tonight's incidents, in which he was involved in two melees.
It's also why guys love having him as a teammate.
On what happened before he left the penalty box to fight: "Muskegon sends three guys out there, who are big players, tough players against our guys. They jump (Colin Chaulk) and (Konstantin Shafranov). Jason Lawmaster had Shaf on the ground, hitting him, and there's no one to break it up. I know what I did was wrong, but somebody has got to step in and help. It's just unecessary."
On shoving the linesman: "I talked to him after and apologized. He understands it was nothing personal. I wasn't trying to shove him. I was just focused on Lawmaster. ... I feel bad for doing that."
On the Lumberjacks: "I'm pretty sure Muskegon's coach had a good idea what would happen when he sent those guys out. I regret pushing the linesman, but that's about it. Someone had to do something. You can't allow guys like Big Snake and Lawmaster to do those things. .... If you're going to play that role, at least be honest. You don't have to jump guys. I'm sure there would have been willing combatants out there."
