Florida Panthers forward Matthew Tkachuk unveiled in an interview why he punched Edmonton Oilers superstar Connor McDavid.

It would have been hard to suggest there was much bad blood between the Oilers and the Panthers in the first three games of the Stanley Cup Final, with each game going Florida's way. However, on Saturday night, the Oilers showed signs of life in Game 4, and that was enough to bring the tension to the surface.
The Oilers dominated Game 4, delivering an 8-1 thrashing to the Panthers, the most lopsided victory ever by a team facing elimination in the Stanley Cup Final.
Despite the one-sided loss, the Panthers didn't go quietly. They got physical with the Oilers after the whistle, even targeting the team's star players. Both Sam Bennett and Matthew Tkachuk found themselves in the penalty box midway through the second period after delivering punches to Oilers captain Connor McDavid.
Matthew Tkachuk gets Connor McDavid in a headlock and throws three sneaky uppercuts on him. That's why he's not liked much by #Oilers fans. Different uniform, same antics ... #Panthers #StanleyCupFinal

After the game, Tkachuk was asked about the incident and didn't deny taking liberties with McDavid.
Mathew Tkachuk asked about getting a few punches in on Connor McDavid. Says it was a scrum and just «classic playoff hockey.»

He added that both he and the Panthers would learn from the loss and come back ready to perform in front of their home fans in Game 5.
