Matthew Tkachuk Crosses the Line with Unacceptable Chirp about Opponent’s Wife

Game 2 between the Boston Bruins and the Florida Panthers was a high-scoring affair. When Tomas Nosek whacked Eric Staal with a high elbow, tempers flared.

During the next shift, tempers erupted once more, this time with the microphone recording the talk at the bench. That’s when Matthew Tkachuk’s emotions got the best of him and he said something inappropriate about Nosek’s wife.

Hear for yourself:

Tkachuk may be heard repeatedly saying this in the video. Players usually know enough to keep other players’ wives and family off the table. This is unquestionably a breach of the hockey code, but who is going to hold Tkachuk accountable?

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
