From a Bob McKenzie story on TSN:
In a pre-game ceremony to honor Giant forward Spencer Machacek, Beach loudly and very clearly verbally abused Machacek to the point where it was an obvious distraction, even to the fans in attendance. Minutes later, Beach and Machacek dropped the gloves and fought off the opening faceoff.Sounds like a great guy.
And here's a YouTube of the fight. Watch the near wingers. Machacek is in the dark, #15.
