he jumped off the bench to get into the fight. The MSG feed doesn't show that. NBC's feed did.
Just watch the replay. No feed can make him disappear. You can clearly see him on the ice before the hit even occurs, then he skates directly over and challenges Niskanen.

I will say this, if you're going to have a miserable game like that at least it's only the second game of the playoffs, and it's a wakeup call that comes against a very beatable team. Hopefully the Pens got the message, once and for all.
