Andreas Athanasiou and Anthony Mantha each had two goals and an assist as the Red Wings blitzed the visiting Calgary Flames last night, 8-2. But following the game, officials assessed him with two additional 10-minute misconducts, bringing him to his 37 total minutes.
"There's something to be said for making sure you don't get pushed around, and I'm a big believer in you have to fight for your teammates". He fought Flames defenceman Brett Kulak with the Red Wings up 6-2 in the third period and, after knocking Kulak to the ground, Witkowski pushed him down twice and challenged the Flames bench. The incident occurred on Wednesday night when the Red Wings took on the Calgary Flames.
"When you stick up for each other and you stick up for yourselves its a positive thing", Detroit coach Jeff Blashill said.

The development came after a video of Majid's mother 50-year-old Asyia Begum, crying and begging him to return home surfaced. Gen Raju, who commands the Army's Victor Force in southern Kashmir, urged other Kashmiri youths to also give up militancy.
"Nobody wants to sit out 10 games", Witkowski said. He added that the way the rule is written, it doesn't give the league "any ability to apply judgment because it's so black and white".
"Anytime I get up there (on the top lines) I try to build as much chemistry with whoever I'm out there with", he continued, "and play off them as much as I can". "Once he (Witkowski) goes back on, he could have made it way worse and he chose not to".
The Red Wings coach continued with a comment about the Red Wings missing the playoffs last year for the first time in 25 years.
