Sportsnet posts the Werenski-Larkin fight

Here ya go:

Update: The Athletic’s Aaron Portzline reports that there are no hard feelings between the two combatants:

“I’ve already been sent the video of it, along with a ton of texts,” Werenski said. “I never would have guessed that would happen, but that’s hockey. I might get a picture of it framed and blown up in my house or something. It’s pretty surreal that we’re in the NHL fighting.”

Who won the fight? Werenski declined to say … sort of.

“I won’t say much if I hit him or not,” he said. “But I didn’t get hit, so I take that as a win.”

The Blue Jackets and Red Wings play again Tuesday, and there’s no telling what kind of emotional baggage they’ll carry into the game. The NHL’s new schedule matrix could create some friction this season.

But there won’t be any carry-over with Werenski or Larkin. About three hours after Monday’s game, Larkin set up the Werenskis with four more tickets so Zach’s mother, Kristin, and brother, Brad, could each attend with a friend.

“No hard feelings,” Werenski said.
