GIF: Radko Gudas slashes at Panthers bench after being sprayed with waterbottle

An odd sequence punctuated the second period of Sunday evening's all-Florida hockey game between the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Florida Panthers. 

With just a bit over seven minutes left in the second frame, bearded Lightning defenseman Radko Gudas took a spill near the Florida Panthers bench. Panthers veteran Scott Upshall - a frequent healthy scratch of late - took the opportunity to channel John Tortorella and squirt Gudas with his water-bottle. 

Gudas' reaction was a bit over the top, and resulted in a game misconduct for the young Lightning defender. Here's a .gif of Gudas' slash:

Scott Upshall was assessed a bench minor for unsportsmanlike conduct for his Supersoaker hi-jinks.
