SAN JOSE (CBS Sports) – San Jose Sharks enforcer Ben Eager was the recipient of pointed criticism following his 20 penalty minute performance in a game-two blowout loss to the Vancouver Canucks in the Western Conference Finals, but he also received an unusual visit from a female Canucks fan during one of his trips to the box.
A certain female Canucks fan raised her jersey and flashed Eager as he sat in the penalty box during the third period. The display was shown live on the Canadian broadcast, although Versus here in the states missed the show.
“I saw it, yeah,” Eager said on Thursday. “I got a few text messages with the picture after the game, too. It was an interesting night, for sure.”
Canucks spokesman Ben Brown told CBSSports.com the fan was removed from Rogers Arena immediately.
The Sharks will try to reverse the series momentum Friday night when they return to HP Pavilion trailing 0-2 in the series.
